“Pictures Tell A Truth”: Behind The Scenes With Niveditaa Gupta
In this episode of “Behind the Scenes”, where we showcase the work of visionary photographers and ask about their experiences beyond what is seen by the public, we are presenting Niveditaa Gupta, an architectural photographer, and filmmaker based in New Delhi, India. Through her photos, she looks to create visuals that can prompt a discourse about architecture itself.
ArchDaily – Victor Delaqua (VD): Do the pictures tell a truth or a lie?
Niveditaa Gupta (NG): They tell ‘a’ truth.
VD: Editing is cheating?
NG: I’d say ‘RAW’ food is not for everyone.
VD: What are the key elements for a great architectural shot?
NG: A shy building, and an overly invasive photographer!
VD: If you weren’t a photographer, what would you be doing?
NG: Probably something in sales, I guess I get those genes from my father.
VD: A dream that has not yet come true in photography.
NG: Didn’t get a chance to take a photograph of my father before his untimely death. It will always remain my dream.
VD: How is the work process with architects?
NG: Some architects tend to be more involved than others. I personally enjoy monologues and dialogues equally!
