Ahmed Firoz is back once again with his street stories. These moments of life narrated through a series of enigmatic and poignant frames involve people and other objects from diverse walks of life in situations of contrasts but all lying in a larger harmony. These photographs are not documentaries but point to the reality of the world expressed in different forms and seen through the interactions of the subjects within the frames. Each of the exhibited frames in this series carries a profound yet subtle message and together they unfold a unique world view with a narrative left for wider interpretation of the changing time. These 36 frames shot candidly in various locations worldwide present passing moments of the street to collectively express the photographer’s point of view of what’s happening around the world in this time of uncertainty and turbulence.
Firoz studied Economics for his MA, M.Phil and Ph.D. at India’s prestigious Jawaharlal Nehru University, New Delhi. He is heading an important economic and technical research organization related to the steel and mining industries to advise the Indian government on policy and strategic matters.
