“Chiaroscuro” ….

There are very few women photographers in India and still fewer have held solo exhibition.

Sonali Dalal joins this rare community by holding a solo exhibition of her photographs titled “CHIAROSCURO”. ‘(Kee-ahr-uh-skyoor-oh)’ is defined by Webster’s dictionary as “a pictorial representation in terms of light and shade without regard to colour”.

This exhibition in a contemporary idiom depicts her fascination with, play of light and shadow in a photograph. She believes that shadow is a subtle way of highlighting the subject. While casting a sophisticated dark look at today’s world, she emphasizes the play of light as a beacon of hope.

To give free rein to viewer’s imagination in interpreting what he or she sees, she has refrained from titling the photographs leaving them ‘Untitled’
