Ferrante Ferranti, a qualified architect and a professional photographer from Paris, has a passion for art and sculpture, for representation of religious art in general, and has specialized in the study of Baroque art. His photographs have appeared in about twenty publications on art in Europe, South America and Middle East, and he lives and works in Paris. Some of his personal works have been on themes like Baroques, Sicilitude, Ailes de lumière, Eros solaire, Séville, Les Chemins du Nouveau Monde, Mélancolie des ruines, Regards Roumains.
His recent fascination has been with the rich heritage of Rajasthan. His works there comprise black and white photographs that evoke a common memory, linked with a quest for new horizons. The photographer's eye creates variations based on individual attitudes in front of figures of worship, and his attempt to capture the lives of those looking for their way in sacred places is remarkable.
The aim of this exhibition is to blend the traces of the great Portuguese navigators with the appearances of the sacred in India, also to establish parallels with their source in Portugal and in their distant echoes in Brazil.
This photography exhibition is being presented by the Alliance Française Of Hyderabad in association with Daira art gallery and the Embassy of France in India.
