ĀRUN (b. 1990, India) focuses on the contemporary forces of development on Indian identity, traditional culture and natural environments. Shooting in his preferred black and white medium format, he investigates his subjects with an eye for lines of geometry and contrasts of light and shadow, perhaps influenced by his appreciation for the work of Lu Nan and Gordon Parks. His personal stories demonstrate his intense study of a subject often offset by surprising observations unexpected by the viewer.
ĀRUN is a self-taught, freelance photographer with a particular interest in archival photographic processes. He has been mentored by French photographer, Yannick Cormier.
