A Fine Photo-Artist
Born in November, 1968 in Bastar (India), Upendra Upadhyay possesses his own style of expression. His photographs are unique in their content material, composition and overall presentation. They, at first sight, resemble the creations of a fine painter. This quality of Mr. Upendra sets him apart from his contemporary ones. He loves capturing whatever his soul says. He believes that an artist’s efforts become significant when his creations converse with the viewers. “If my photographs are capable of making a knock at viewers’ heart for a moment, it is the ultimate satisfaction for me”, states Mr. Upendra. Presently he resides in Indore.
Many of his photographs have been awarded in the contests at national and international levels. The Federation Internationale de l’ Art Photographique, France has honoured him with prestigious AFIAP (Artiste Federation Internationale de l’ Art Photographique) and The Federation of Indian Photography Kolkata, India has honoured him with its Fellowship (FFIP).
He has to his credit more than 10 exhibitions at different places of India.
Mr. Upendra believes that art is a continuous process that goes on throughout the life. He never wants to look back and feels satisfied in proceeding ahead with his companion, i.e., camera.
