Karam K. Puri
Karam Puri has been shooting professionally for the past decade. Karam’s strong imagery and character portraits are built around travel photography and draw inspiration from early Technicolor films. His work on South-Eastern Africa at the end of the civil war in Mozambique in 2005 and 2006 has been widely published and exhibited this work in Calcutta and New Delhi. In 2008, his first coffee table book, “Gujarat: A Journey” was published by Trio Omni Media. His work extends to editorial, documentary and street photography. Karam’s first solo exhibition, ‘Liberte`’ which documented the protests in New York City leading up to the Republican National Convention, debuted in New Delhi in 2005. His solo show, ‘A Million Voices’, opened in Calcutta and moved to the Gallery Romain Rolland at the Alliance Francaise in New Delhi in 2009. His work has also been shown in Bombay by The Fine Art Company along with Vivaan Sundaram, T.S. Satyan, Meera Devidayal and Samar Jodha Singh as a part of a tribute to famed author Khushwant Singh. And most recently the artist has had his solo exhibition ‘E.P.: Extended Play’ at Gallery Espace, New Delhi.
