The Love Story

House Sparrows have a close connection with people and their buildings. They won’t be found in extensive woodlands, forests, or grasslands. They can survive only in the company of humans and their settlement.

But their life is endangered by human development. The modern day buildings and apartments are not sparrow friendly. They do not provide the space for the sparrows to build their nest and raise a family in their own sweet world.

Below are two photographs of sparrows taken at different intervals. When put together, they have a dialogue. What do they say?

Love story

Sparrow 1 (Left Picture): “Come with me. I’ll take you away to a new world where we can breathe the fresh air. I’ll be your Savior. I’ll protect you and take care of you. Do not panic, come with me. I’m ready to fly. It is a beautiful world out there. We can spend the rest of our life in peace.”

Sparrow 2 (Right Picture): (sighs) “How i wish i was born free. All my life i struggled. I do not want to waste my time and let my life go in vain. We can recreate a new world here. I wish to see the sunshine. I wish to see the rain. I want to rest in peace with you here in our own sweet world. Do not go, come back to me”.

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.

Adieu

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.
