Sriram Raghu took the time during lockdown in India to create these portraits of artist friends.
Lockdown had its impact on the photography business, and as a fulltime photographer, I had no clue what would happen to all the bookings that were made.
I had some family time, but there was this urge to create content.
My team and I requested a few artists to be a part of a photo series that involved global brands like Fujifilm and Profoto, with the backdrop sponsored by Prop’snest.
We spent a minimum of 3 to 6 hrs min for each artist to explore the various possibilities that we could do, and lit them in a different ways to make it look like digital paintings .
We couldn move out due to the lockdown and the only way to execute the project was to use our studio space . Srishti Digilife and Profoto helped us to make it better. Thanks to all who were part of this and a special thanks to my team.
