Award Winning Street Photographer
Ranasinghe says that "photography is not only a passion, but an art where you
find the 'un-findable' in common places." He unveils the world as it is through
his personal perspectives through the lens of his camera.
Ravindra's entry into this photography profession was accidental as he submitted a photo from a cyber shot camera to the 54th Photographic Society of Sri Lanka (PSSL) where it got accepted. Being a part of the PSSL and also the Lionel Wendt Photography Society, he learned the skills of photography that are rendered into his masterpieces today. His captures were also recognized and awarded at the Federation International de L'Art Photographique.
Living amidst the rat race of life, Ravindra empathizes with the viewers of his photography and tries to capture the value and serenity of human relationships in a therapeutic manner. He incorporates a variety of color palettes into his photography to empathize with the world, and visualizes it beautifully and expressively.
His dependence on sunlight and 'light' highlights his great enthusiasm in playing around with light and shadow to dramatize the portrayal of his subjects.
Ravindra's photographs are characterized with his personal observations and myriad perceptions of people, places and common place activities that create a unique impact. They transform the art of standard photography into a uniquely expressive and emotional form, while it also rejuvenates the eyes with fresh and rich color.
The depth of human emotion and its impact on humankind is made to contend with unique emotional moments in Ravindra's surroundings. These graphically striking images, allow the beauty of humanity to unveil itself. His photography is enhanced by his skill at manipulating an image to speak a thousand words and to engross the viewer into the emotion it conveys.
The intricate details, of man and nature's relationship creates a photograph strongly rooted in meticulousness, expression and emotion.
Ravindra uses the knowledge of his photography courses, experience and critical feedback to strive for self- improvement. He focuses his efforts and his camera lens find something unique in every setting and has photographed tsunami affected villages in Sri Lanka, the districts of Batticaloa, Jaffna, Polonnaruwa in Sri Lanka and even Rajasthan in India.
Ravindra's relationship with his camera relies on inspiration from a vast range of subjects, while his work connotates the power and timelessness of humanity.
He captures feeling, expression and emotion that the naked eye cannot see or the unfeeling heart cannot feel, as he freezes precious moments in time and expresses their warmth and value.
Ravindra Ranasighe's work explores detail that describe the essential harmony within nature and humanity. Instead of looking at a mother holding a child in its still form, he sees the power of a mother's love for her child. It's this emotional connection that makes this photography unique and artistically revolutionary!
