“My main focus in photography is to capture unusual landscapes and portraits which can express the internal spirit of a subject in a single frame.”
More often than not, one will find Jayanta Roy listening to music as he stands completely immersed in the stunning landscape in front of him. An Indian photographer who creates stunning visuals which are calm, pleasant and emotional, Jayanta has produced some astounding works that posit graphic elements and minimal expression against a clever wit and sharp sense of design.
His subjects are symbols, as they appear in both everyday life and art history, and his photography is how they trick us into belief or seduce us into complacency. He employs flat, sparse surfaces with a touch of photorealism, pop and minimalism to pass comments on conceptual art, the postmodern visual landscape, and even politics.
