After returning from years of war coverage, Peter van Agtmael tries to piece together the memory, identity, race, class, and family, in a landscape which has become as surreal as the war he left behind.
I, Ranita Roy, from Andul, District: Howrah, State: West Bengal, Country: India, always wanted to live a creative life. My goal is to show different moments and moods. I love to work with People, Environment, Street, Nature, Landscape, Travel, Portrait and Fine Arts.
I focus on a place with regular people in exaggerated situations that highlight an aspect of who they are. I look for a sense of defiance and fortitude in my work. Also, I Love to hunt the moment of mystery, surprise, and humor in my photography. These fragments of fictional stories are drawn from the real world through the facsimile or aesthetic composition that hints at a larger story. It’s something interesting in the ordinary places. I emphasize on light and shadow, where I catch the frames in exaggerated way with a moment of mystery. Above all, I photograph to reproduce the feeling of the moment.
