I have always remained motivated by the patronage extended by you for all of my professional endeavours – be it assignment for architectural, interior, product or fashion photographs; or visited my exhibitions at Mumbai, Delhi, Indore and other places; or conveyed your views to my photographs of Five elements of Nature and Landscapes. I appreciate your concern about my work of fine art photography.
Here I take this opportunity to inform that my Coffee-table-book – SIMHASTHA A Quiet Walk has been recently published and unveiled by Swami Awdheshanandji on 6-May-2016.
SIMHASTHA A Quiet Walk is a coffee table book comprising of selected photographs of Upendra Upadhyay. The photographs that were taken during SIMHASTHA (Kumbh mela held at Ujjain in MP every 12 years) that held in year 2004 and 2016. The photographs in the coffee-table-book are translation of vivid moments that emerged all across. Each photograph of the book has an expression describing the spiritual belief of the saints and the people, the intensity of faith and trust are beautifully captured from within the grandeur and simplicity that coexist. The photographs are either a full page size or double-spread that causes it to be a visual treat. Even the sequencing of photographs have been carefully done that makes it a pictorial story telling book. As you turn the pages the visual and color goes so well that it soothes your eyes. As a whole the book is a pictorial dossier of Simhastha worthy to be in a collection of books.
