Gallery Artist Sid Tawadey Wins London Photography Award

August 5, 2010

English Summer by Siddhartha Tawadey

Photographer Siddhartha Tawadey  is the recent recipient of the London Photography Award for 2010.  What makes this even more significant is that he is the very first Indian photographer chosen for the award.  Tawadey’s work will be on display at the 3 Bedfordbury Gallery in Covent Garden.

In an interview with The Sunday Guardian, Delhi, Tawadey characterized the work as, “English Summer epitomizes the summers in England, where there is a mixture of rain and sunshine.  The light and shadow play in the image, reflecting the central theme in London, which is hope and pessimism.”

His unique eye, which plays with what Tawadey calls “ordinary vision,” is able to capture the truly nondescript and focus it in an extraordinary way.  Like a scientist in his lab, he plays with his images, using various methods to expand the photo beyond its physical frame.  Tawadey’s work is available at the Fernando Luis Alvarez Gallery, which serves as his exclusive representation in North America.
