“To see a World in a Grain of Sand

And a Heaven in a Wild Flower

Hold Infinity in the palm of your hand

And Eternity in an hour…” 

– Auguries of Innocence by William Blake

Born in New Delhi, photographer Aryaman Dixit is our artist of the month. From the time he discovered photography at the age of seventeen, Dixit has not put down his camera since. Dixit’s early works reference his musical influences – his mother was a trained Indian classical singer, while his father introduced him to Rock music – through his documentation of the vibrant music scene in India in black and white photography.

"Landscapes in a cup - 2" by Aryaman Dixit
Digital Print on enchanced matte paper / 20.3cm x 30.5cm / 8.0" x 12.0" / Edition of 20 / US$ 300

An ongoing series of Dixit’s, Landscapes in a cup is a recent body of work that explores and reflects upon loneliness, despite an increasingly globalized and digitally-connected world. Each photograph features a cup, sitting poignantly on a surface – whether a table or a rug – shot from a directly overhead view. Each photograph has been digitally manipulated to render the cup a window into another distant world. The contrast between the tightly-framed singular cup and the panoramic view of a far-flung mountain range or desert adds to a sense of melancholy; the singularity of the viewer juxtaposed against the vast unknowable magnificence of nature.

Technology has brought these worlds closer to us, fitting perfectly into a tiny cup in the personal environment of our homes. Yet, why do we feel so alone looking at these photographs? Dixit’s sensitivity to our current human condition and his use of photo manipulation reveal to the viewer these dichotomies in the most elegant of ways.

 

Dixit studied photography at The School of Photography, Bharati Vidyapeeth, Pune. He is now a full-time, independent photographer based in India.
