In private mail to me, Nilanjan wrote (Nilanjan, hope you don't mind I sharing this snippet of the mail) - Just open the pencil sketch image of Prithvi and listen to this song by Tagore....no need to understand the language, the tune itself will make you feel lost in these bamboo woods, this is the power of art, is there enough wealth in this world which can buy this happiness ? .
I want you to enjoy as much as I did. Thanks a bunch for sharing Nilanjan. I just loved the tender movement of moody tones. Yes, music is a language by itself, it does not need another language to understand.
On a comparative note, one challenge of photographer (more so with nature photographer) strikes my mind. In other forms of art like music and painting, creation/composition happens with closed eyes while
in photography it needs wide open eyes. This in my mind is a big difference and challenge. Creation here happens through cues from subjects in front of us. Then it is all about seeing
. For this reason I think
comparison between painting and a photo is like comparing orange to an apple.
Your take ?
