After the Elusive Light: Photographing Ladakh
For Isaac, photographing Ladakh has been one of the most rewarding experiences so far. Be it taking the camera on a walk, a trek or on a drive, the ever-changing Himalayan light have been constantly communicable to the eye and memory. In such a landscape, he still struggles to know that one special image.
Isaac says, “While on long journeys through mountains in cars, the world passes by very quickly. Every now and then there is something you see in a split moment that gets etched to memory. I think such moments and at other times, we remember what we see in stills rather than in motion”.
The artist is on a constant journey of to define a style and find new methods of photographing his experiences, mundane or extraordinary. The in-between moments, a feeling moment, for that elusive light which marries what it touches in perfect harmony.
Isaac Tsetan Gergan is an artist, photographer and designer from Leh, Ladakh. Though he grew up in different parts of the world, but Leh is where his heart lies. The camera, to him is a tool, that allows him endless experimentation and play, like an artist with a paintbrush or a writer with a pen.
“I have been fascinated with the idea of capturing images, making the large, immensely fascinating world my own from as long as I can remember. From experimenting with countless point and shoots, early mobile phone cameras and manual film cameras, I have come to understand capturing my experiences as second nature” says, Isaac.
