Sriram Janak – Photography

Art…

 

Art is both love and friendship and

 understanding:

the desire to give.

It is not charity, which is the giving

of things.

 

_pop0737-bw

 

It is more than kindness, which is

the giving of self.

It is both taking and giving of beauty, the turning

out to the light of the inner folds of the awareness

of the spirit.

It is the recreation on another plane of

 the realities of the world;

The tragic and wonderful realities of earth

and men…

and all the interrelations

of these.

    Jet Eliot said so well about your Art post. The lights of your photos said gracefully of the light inner of an artist (you). All are elegantly presented. Thank you, Mr. Sriram for the “giving of self”.

  6. How you do what you do has me sitting here in absolute awe. I do not know how long I’ve been here, and I do not care for in immersing myself in your art, I am transformed into Light. Phenomenal images, Sriram! The grace, the sublime messages, the softness, all intertwined with Ansel Adams’ wisdom all have me floating on a cloud somewhere. You create magic. Thank you for sharing yourself. It is quite the honor to be here right now. ❤

  8. It’s so true, art is more than what we can see! That’s a lovely post and your photos are amazing! I’m currently running a poll about which kind of art inspires us, if you have time to share your answer, that would be awesome!
