Imagine if we saw all seasons in Color “Black” | TEJAL PATNI.
This Dream Project “Splash Calendar 2011” was initiated by Partnership/Dubai/U.A.E and backed by “Splash” CEO Raza Beig.The aim was to make this region’s definitive “Fashion Calender” as its the first time ,something like this is happening or done in this part of the world.
Imagine if we saw all seasons in Color “Black”? what would it be ,or look like???
I approached all seasons as if I was writing a script for 12 different feature films ,therefore wrote 12 scenes.
In my Photography I try and combine my influences of my favourite feature films and work of great directors, I feel its always present in my fashion work.
I have combined influences of films,Mr.Tim Burton’s & Federico Fellini’s work & Broadway shows for set inspirations etc.
Endless efforts were put in by my Team! I salute everyone for making this Dream come to Reality!!!!! TEJAL PATNI
I graduated from the Sir JJ School of Applied Arts and started out as a still photographer. After all these years, I’m happy to report I’m still one. I’ve shot for Harvey Nichols, Chanel, Levi’s and a whole host of some of the world’s most exciting brands. ( I guess I’ve been lucky.)
I’ve always tried to ‘push things a bit’, give people something they haven’t seen before.
Sometimes I’ve managed to do that. Sometimes I haven’t.
Over the past few years or so, I’ve been pushing myself. I still love stills, but I don’t like being static. Cut to London. I’m in a classroom full of kids studying film making. I graduate from the London Film Academy.
I’m moving. I think there is something deeply fulfilling about the whole idea of Locomotion. I’m not too sure where it’s all headed, but it feels good. To be a journeyman, to be on the road. Especially when the light’s just right.
