1971 may seem like way long back to be born in, but Dhanraj Emanuel makes it look pretty recent with how much he's done. Here's him back in his hometown.

The Kalahita Art Foundation at Nagarjuna Hills is organising an exhibition of photographic images called Serendipity, by US-based Emanuel, from 28th March till 7th April. Serendipity is a series of landscapes that Emanuel passed through during a road trip over a 3-week period in 2006. The reasons for pointing the camera at these spaces arose primarily from Dhanraj's fascination with the overwhelming vastness and uniqueness of the landscapes.

These pictures were photographed with a square format camera and with a lens that captures an angle of view seen by the human eye. While a normal lens suggests some kind of normality of vision, the square format denies the viewer any attempt at normality. It instead presents a section of the landscape that has been subjectively taken from a larger space without the illusion of showing everything the eye has witnessed.

Born in 1971 to a family of photographers, Dhanraj Emanuel saw his fascination with photography begin when his father's discarded cameras became tools for his imagination. By age 19, he was involved in the family-owned photo studio in Hyderabad. In a few years he established himself as a commercial photographer in Hyderabad, where he also completed a BFA in photography from the Jawaharlal Nehru Technological University.

In 1999, after 9 years as a successful editorial and advertising photographer, Dhanraj chose to pursue a MFA in photography at the University of Memphis. His works has been shown in the 7th Annual Artwallah Festival and Exhibition, Los Angeles; Post-Colonialism And After: Symposium And Exhibition at the University of South Florida; and at Five Degrees, White Couch Temporary in Brooklyn, NY. He lives in Brooklyn.
