One of the greatest fashion photographers of India, and the one I admire, Prabuddha Dasgupta, passed away on Sunday and he’s just 56 year old. The self-taught photographer is known best for celebrating the female form, be it through his artistic nudes or his deeply moving monochrome images. He also has a few books to his name, and the most celebrated and debated of which is his first, titled Women, and published in 1996.
He has shot for leading Indian and international publications, such as Vogue, Elle, Harper’s Bazaar and GQ, and his works have been exhibited internationally. He is also the recipient of several awards and grants, including the prestigious Yves Saint Laurent grant for photography.
His work as individual perspective have never failed to amaze me with its simplicity and he’s very creative and his work on women, nudes, nature and Goa are exemplary! What was really special about him was that he doesn’t follow the rules of photography and he used to twist and bend the rules, and if a picture was grainy or out of focus, he would turn it to his advantage.
Here I share few of my favorite photos captured by him! For me there's a lot of photos by him as favorite and i should say i adore every shot by him and they are unique.
