Hasnain Soomar’s photo-exhibition titled Meeting Point is a beautiful exploration of the sacred captured through his lens as he makes a physical and metaphorical journey in search of that which takes one beyond the palpable.
He celebrates life and its simplicity in basic actions, in laughter, in prayer, in meditation and in contemplation as he shoots people, often caught unawares by the gaze of the photographer. His definition of divinity is ubiquitous — he finds it in objects, in human beings and in their emotions.
From the banks of the Narmada to Anandamayee Ma’s ashram in Delhi (the celebrated woman saint) and various dargahs and mausoleums, Soomar merges his creative calling with his deep spiritual voice, orchestrating a symphony where the self meets the soul.
