This is THE ONLY large format Artist's Proof of Vikram Kushwah's most iconic photograph, 'Ofelea and the Flying Balloons' (from his acclaimed 'Ofelea' series) that featured in 'AOP50 : Images That Defined The Age' exhibition in London. This exhibition featured 50 of the most iconic images shot by AOP members in the past 50 years, including the famous Twiggy and Nelson Mandela portraits. The image was shot in rural Kent (also known as the Garden of England) in a medieval college for priests, built in 1362 and partly rebuilt in 1598. The photograph, which has its roots in the Freudian theory of 'The Uncanny' (Das Unheimliche), is part of a larger body of work titled 'Ofelea'. The series can be viewed here : https://www.vikramkushwah.com/ofelea (please copy the url and paste it in your browser if the link does not work). Researched and shot over a period of nine months, this project has involved long aimless walks in the woods in Kent, meeting strange people and finding myself in remote and isolated places as a result of which my daydreams/dreamscapes gave me rather peculiar visuals. Intricate study of the art and writings of the surrealists and re-visiting my very old storybooks helped me give perspective to the Freudian philosophy of the uncanny. Rather than illustrating the uncanny, the idea here is to give the viewer an experience of the uncanny by extracting fragments of desires and fantasies buried within the sub-conscious. The photograph has been shot on an analog medium format camera using black and white film. The artwork will be signed at the back and will come with a Certificate of Authenticity.

Shortlisted by and showcased at the National Portrait Gallery, London, for the Taylor Wessing Portrait Prize 2019 and Portrait of Britain 2018 and 2019 winner, Vikram Kushwah, was born in New Delhi, India. He is a fashion and art photographer based in England. Whether artistic or commercial, his pictures have a dream-like quality, in which the boundaries between fiction and reality are blurred. In addition to being inspired by his own childhood memories, as well as childhood stories such as Alice's Adventures in Wonderland, Vikram’s artistic influences include the photographers Guy Bourdin, Tim Walker and Deborah Turbeville, as well as the work of the Surrealists, the Romantics and the Pre-Raphaelites. Vikram strives to draw viewers into phantasmagorical worlds through his meticulously staged photographs. In 2008, Vikram arrived in London to undertake a post-graduate diploma in Photography at the London College of Communication, after which, in 2010, he completed his MA in Photography at the University for the Creative Arts in Rochester, England. He has since been practicing in Britain and India, working for reputed publications such as Vogue, Harper's Bazaar and Elle and showing his work in galleries in the UK, Europe and the USA. His works form parts of private and corporate collections, spanning Europe, America, Australia, Middle-East and Asia. Vogue Italia featured him among their 'New Talents' and selected his work to be exhibited in their Milan exhibition, ‘Best of PhotoVogue’ in 2012. His work for Grey Singapore won a Cannes Young Lions Award (bronze) in 2013 for Best Photography for his Duracell batteries campaign. This year his 'Women in Bathing Suits' series has been shortlisted for the AOP awards. Vikram lives in his Oxfordshire country home with his wife and a menagerie of pets.
