Beauty in Decay

"Urban reflections, lost mirrors, driftwood, dirty walls... I try to express myself and offer new ways of seeing the world around us. I don’t try to give a realistic view of my subjects. I leave the identity of the subject behind. I look at its color, fabric and lines. The less I interfere with my subject, the stronger it will be", Florence Notté, a French Urban Photographer with an interest in decay and urban reflections of the cities such as Paris, Tokyo and Singapore. She doesn’t believe in setting up photo shoots artificially but framing ordinary objects very narrowly to catch their last bit of life, their last breath.

"I do not want to be a witness of my era. My photography is not a testimony or a report. I just want to grasp the beauty of things at one given time, that moment being unique. The fleeting beauty of this fascinating world"

One Day @ Golkonda Fort

As I approached nearer, the morning sun bathed relic castle a long shadow engulfing me within an organic whole. It was a strange thrill snaking through my psyche, filling it with apprehension. Coming close to history has always been my fetish. Somehow it never fails to transport me to the by-gone era of the larger than life canvas, the commanding trail of Heroes who reigned, burgeoned, went through their share of zeniths & nadirs and finally navigate en route the call of destiny.

The king of diamonds Kohinoor is believed to be found here – the Golkonda Fort stands proud and imposing in its titanic dignity on a 120m high granite hill, 11 km away on the western outskirts of the 400 yrs old city Hydrabad. Before the advent of Hyderabad, Deccan was ruled from Golkonda fort. Attested to by foreigners like Marco Polo, an Italian traveler, the place was famous during the medieval world for its extensive trade in gems and diamonds.
