RIYA SHARMA

Illumination: An Exhibition of Fine Art Photography
April 26 – May 17, 2016
Reception: Thursday, April 28, 2016 6-8 PM

The images created by professional freelance travel and street photographer Riya Sharma feature strong graphic imagery accentuated by vibrant colors and a profound expressionistic bent. There is a simplicity to Riya's photographs, a singularity of focus that is transformed into something quite beautiful before the viewers' eyes. Subjects range from expressionistic portraits to compelling subjects who suffer from poverty and social inequality. 

Above all, Riya's art is driven by a desire to forge connection between viewer and subject, to delve into the layers of emotive significance and symbolic meaning captured in the image, and bridge new levels of understanding. Much of the artistic vision stems from something many of us experience in childhood: to simply watch the world go by. And that vision is only deepened and elaborated by the sophisticated eye of the well-seasoned photographer that Riya has become. As Riya explains, “My goal is working toward taking the ‘perfect’ picture—that combination of technique, style, and impact that still draws people to look at an image years or decades later.”

Riya Sharma currently lives and works in Kalol, Gujarat, India. She holds a professional press card from the New York Institute of Photography and is an official photographer for their PhotoWorld Magazine.
