Mumbai dentist to feature innovative stream in photography at Kalaghoda festival

Mumbai dentist to feature innovative stream in photography at Kalaghoda festival

Mumbai, January 30:  Passion with a difference has motivated a 30-year old Mumbai-based dentist to a new form of innovative and imaginative photography termed – Liquid Collissions. The dentist is all set to display his collections at the annual Kalaghoda festival under the exhibit name Liquid Canvas starting Feb 1.

Liquid Collisions is a specialized field of High Speed Macro photography that has a wide variety of theme based applications which can be put to action based on the artists’ imagination and experience in lighting, background and liquid behavior.

Simply speaking, the photography captures the brilliant formations which take place when two drops of liquids collide with each other.

Speaking about his obsession for this new stream of photography, Mayur Davda, the 30-year young dentist, said, “My passion for photography encouraged me to take up Liquid Photography in 2011. I couldnt believe my eyes after seeing how beautifully a few artists abroad were capturing liquid drops in the camera. I soon started reading about it and came up with my own indigenous methods to click water drops and their collisions.”

This phenomenon which is otherwise so fast that it is invisible to the naked eye is choreographed during photography by using suitable backgrounds and appropriate light effects to bring out the best in each “splash” which takes place. To get brilliant colorful collision images various liquids like water, milk, acrylic colors etc are dropped down from a specific height. This results in beautiful shapes and a riot of colors which fit into a particular theme of preconceived imagination.

Davda received recognition for his passion when his photographs were selected for the final round of
"TOTO FUNDS THE ARTS" which provides funds to upcoming young artists below the age of 30. One of his collection also got selected in the final among a huge list of participants in a renowned Global photography competition that got exhibited at the Taj Lit Fest at Agra in Dec 2013 while he will also be featuring his photography at Delhi Haat to be held in February 2014.
