I feel that it is very important for us as human beings and as photographers to try and rid ourselves of the obsessive hunt for order and chaos in everything we see. I will speak for myself and say that my mind usually tries to categorize everything I see into 'order' or 'chaos'. Maybe it is inherent in us. But sometimes I feel that it hampers my vision as this series of photographs clearly proves. I feel that we need to look beyond this obsession and accept that some things, especially in Nature, are neither created orderly nor in a chaotic way. Things are just the way they are; there is perfection in their imperfection; and if we start accepting and appreciating that, I think we would go far not only in image making but in our love for nature. This series will probably make me stop and think twice when I see something and try to categorize it, in the future.

I love this series especially for this reason. It defies all establishment or rules. I also love the use of negative space in some of the images. For reasons I can't entirely describe, the second last picture is my favourite, perhaps for the complete lack of order/chaos.

It's always a privilege having a glimpse of the thoughts that go behind your work, please do share what your thoughts are too. :)

i am still unsure about the blur impressionism behind the images, esp the third image from the top, would love to know your thoughts sir :) the last image is a classic , the black in the bottom and the free three birds makes it so complete , awesome work

Falak, I deliberately wanted to experiment with unbalanced and asymmetric compositions. Asymmetric from two perspectives - spatial asymmetry and structural asymmetry (definition) which is more evident in compositions 1,6 & 7 from top. Somehow they appeared novel and fresh (aesthetically) for my taste buds.

Swapnil, the 3rd one is very busy but is also unbalanced (top heavy) for my taste buds.

I like the third one. I feel a sense of freedom and breakaway being conveyed. That also means sense of freedom and breaking away from classical way of arranging things in a learnt manner. Unlearning is so difficult.
Seen your notes in the forum as well. One of the foremost researchers in this area of scientifically looking at aesthetics is V Ramachandran nuero scientist. He has ventured a theory of asthetics in " the tell tale brain" . Will be glad to lend to you any time :)
I linked a talk in reply to your post

Hi Ganesh, all these images convey a message, I personally like the last sample. I see these set of images as nature's way of exposing its countless artistic compositions. I like this series as one could come up with numerous feelings about each image like freedom, chaos, disorder, etc....thanks for sharing
