Our observation from his photograph holds surrounded hard realism. In addition, these photograph always show one kind of cruelty of existence, life friction, breaking living thoughts and mind burden. Human being, state of being decayed dead man, bluffer, ineligible, regardless of customary, helpless, inferior, evil-doer, some another kind hypocrite, all wicked person, finally makes a ruined biography. This passing of life is visible in Shantanu’s photographs. These photographs’ vital part is just a discolored summary; discloser of a thorny secret.
Yet, humans want to deliver from hindrance and contrariety. Man dreaming a dream. His claim of safety of life; full-blown wish; cancelled emptiness. With the high hope, Shantanu’s photographs charmed direct and indirect vision satisfaction.
In fact, our mind’s eye collect from these photographs in serial order from the beginning genuine reality, external world, post-realism, present magic realism is shining.
