I’ve always been asked who my favourite photographer is. It should be an easy question to answer but it isn’t coz I love the work of many photographers, too many have inspired but to point out one outstanding name I’ve always had to think.
But I’ve found that one inspiring photographer. I’ve known his photos all my life, yet I never knew him. These are photos I’ve seen as a child and today I can remember why I have always loved them. He is none other than Stills Ravi, iconic Tamil film photographer. The iconic photos I connect with Tamil Cinema were shot by him. His signature backlit photos are amazing beyond words. So simple yet extraordinary.
His vision and the subtle details in his photographs are mesmerising. Just look at how he photographed the moments during filming or his portrayal of the directors, cameraman, and music directors. Each actor and actresses character and subtle style can be seen in each picture.
Those photos from the 80s maybe dated in fashion but they are superbly stunning in his vision, execution and brilliance. I just never knew the brilliance behind it.
Take a look at these photos, they’ve all been taken by Stills Ravi sir
Thank you for the inspiration sir.
