Engaged in a metaphysical quest to solve the eternal riddles of life and the universe, Swapan Nayak seeks answers in certain fleeting images, that have been captured forever in his mind’s eye. The photographs in his ongoing show, Being and Nothingness, attempt to help him make sense of the immense ‘vacuum’ that exists between life and death, the two transit points of the gigantic universe, known and defined by man. Hosted by Tasveer & The Seagull Foundation for the Arts. Supported by Cinnamon.
