Shibly Shiraj Photography Exhibition
France, Natural and Eternal: A Photographer’s Journey
From Fri, Jul 26, 2019 to Thu, Aug 08, 2019 ● at La Galerie

The eye of the camera can capture more than what we see with our naked eyes. The success of a person with a camera depends somewhat on how much more he or she can add to the fleeting glimpse of the scene. I always aspire to add new dimension in my photographic endeavors. In doing so I’m most attracted by the nature itself. It is not only the beauty of the nature but also the diversity of such beauty and its place in the mind of the masses entice me. We all appreciate nature but the phenomenon that nature also defines us sometimes escapes us. The pulchritude of nature has attracted the painters, especially the French impressionists who found a new way, a dimension per se, in depicting it.”

In March 2019 Shibly Shiraj took a three week-long journey in France. He rented a car and drove on the highways and the country roads. Travelling around France, from the north coast to the south and from the sea to the mountains, he took pictures of vast naturescapes, and of tiny stones in a running stream — the village home of Édouard Manet enchanted Shiraj and he tried looking at it from the perspective of the nature that surrounds it. Shiraj believes that the nature must remain at the core of human’s existence. The exhibition resolutely follows this pathos.
