Honestly, I didn’t know who Vikram Bawa was until 30 minutes before I met him. I confused him with someone else and on my way to his studio, quickly called up my friend who was working with me on our project on women and body image issues.
She told me of just one picture and I could recall him. That photograph was from a diptych titled – The Man –
What remained with me about the picture then and now is the sheer androgynous beauty about it. He is a man (for sure!) but the jewellery and the graceful pose gives a feminine feel and reminds of the Ardhanarishvara – “the lord who is half woman” – Shiva.
After walking in to his studio, this was what started the conversation between us and it still goes on hopefully not to end ever!
If these pictures of Priyanka can make my heart skip a beat, I can only imagine what they must be doing to all the guys out there.
I love the blue corsette dress she is wearing, her watch, her heels, everything. And oh, can someone please tell me where I could get those earrings from? It’s pictures like these that make me wish I was a photographer. Vikram has absolutely beautifully captured this gorgeous woman..
Even though they were shot a while back, I can see them again n again.. Hope the men “ENJOY” the pics.
We are always in a hurry to do things and reach places. Always in a hurry to eat the cake, but never to smell the beautiful aroma while it is being baked. Always in a hurry to catch the bus, but never being able to enjoy the long ride to work.
In the midst of all this running around comes this beautiful video DHAIRYA, like a breath of fresh air to me.
Direction and Photography by Vikram Bawa.
The video is slow. Takes its own sweet time. Relaxes my nerves. I personally love the music. Today, most of the music I hear is noise, but definitely not this one.
Check out this video and let us know how you like it. Some of you might already have seen it. For those of you who haven’t , please enjoy Vikram Bawa’s direction and Model Nibedita Karmakar’s poise, in all its glory. Make up artist Jaspreet Ghai and hair stylist Leena deserve a special mention for their hard work and creativity.
And let us not forget Aditi Sarda, the heart of the films department, without who we would be as good as headless chickens.
“Vijay Deenanath Chauhan…poora Naam..”..these words have been stuck in my memory forever. The man, Amitabh Bachchan, is one of a kind. When he speaks, people listen, and that is exactly what I did. Listened to him every waking moment of my childhood, because my father was a fan of him. You could say that my love for Mr. Bachchan was passed on to me by my father.
Even in silence, he speaks volumes. These images were shot for HELLO magazine, and we can say with pride that we have been fortunate to have these memories, and the wonderful pictures created by Vikram, with us forever.
One of the most beautiful women shot for HELLO magazine. The designers were the supremely talented Shantanu and Nikhil. It was awesome every step of the way, with Avantika and Riti from the magazine being the most supportive clients ever. It was shot at the Four Seasons, Mumbai.
Still one of the most beautiful shoots.
Such beauty is hard to come by, so treat your eyes, They must be tired after the day’s hard work. 🙂
