The chairman, by Mihir
Click image above to see this photo in Mihir's gallery.
Mihir is from India and although we only have this one picture from Mihir on the DPNow gallery, I have seen a lot of his work elsewhere and he has a genuine talent for extracting thought-provoking images out of scenes that we would usually think photographically barren. I understand that what we have here is a workshop or 'shed'. Beyond that it's difficult to know exactly what is going on but clearly image was formed from a long exposure as there is a ghostly figure in the centre. The dominant object in the scene is a battered old chair. The image is surreal and mysterious, but I also like the lighting and the details which are of an abstract nature. I hope Mihir will be able to fill in the gaps for us.
