Degree Details

School of Arts & Humanities

Photography (MA)

In the culture of consuming excessive information

& feeding intellectual desire/lust.

Let only leave the work of art to be and free,

a complete visual experience.

And let it delve us in the ambiguity.

Then even if you, as a creator wonders,

how it arrived/born

And let you consistently thrive the unrealised

Let it try to make meaning in the meaninglessness

Let’s live & let it live free,

Or die if it dies in the gaze of a seer,

in seeking mere meaning or no meaning,

in a meaningless or the meaningful.
