Adieu to meet again

Silhouettes : Photography is all about experimenting with light, and then positioning ourselves (or our subject) in the right spot to achieve a certain effect. One such effect is a silhouette, in which an outline of someone or something appears dark against a lighter background. Silhouettes can be very dramatic and resemble black shapes without any details. 

Through this photograph we tried to dramatize the effect of Day and Night that reflects a Silhouette.


As the Day bids goodbye, the city embraces the Night to wake up refreshed and meet Day again with new hopes and dreams. Though apart, Day and Night are meant to be together. Though different, one follows the other. 

“Day is are not forever,

Night is not the end.

Night says Day, “I will miss you”

Untill we meet again.”

The Dialogue

Dialogue is an engaging conversational exchange. When it comes to photography, dialogue can be perceived as a consensual interaction between two images. Placed next to each other, each photograph opens up to meanings that weren’t there when viewed alone. Each composition reveals the photographer’s specific sensitivity to certain content or visual elements.

We bring together two of our photos into dialogue. What do they say to each other?

We think the bear and the rhino are having a conversation about the weather in the Zoo. Any other guesses?

Edited: And their conversation turned wild. The bear got hold of the Rhino horn.

The Dialogue

These photographs were taken in Assam State Zoo Cum Botanical Garden, India.
