Providing an insight into ‘Artfoto’, Ishaan remarks, “Artfoto is a world where the paintbrush is a camera and the photo is created into something as magical as a painting could be. There are no themes or concepts in Artfoto, nor are there explanations of why I capture what I have. It is for those who dream to see beyond the contemporary form of photography.”

About Ishaan Suri-
Ishaan Suri is a self-trained photographer and artist who uses photographs to create images that go beyond conventional photography techniques. He believes that a photograph must talk back to you whether it’s a person or a place.
Born and brought up in New Delhi, Ishaan Suri has a varied educational background. He has done his Bachelors in Business and Economics from the London School of Economics, UK, and has also studied at the University of Rochester, New York. Ishaan is the Director, Corporate Marketing, Interarch Building Products Pvt Ltd, a 500-crore company spread across India with manufacturing facilities at Rudrapur, Kiccha in Uttarakhand, and Sriperembadur in Tamil Nadu.
Self-trained as a photographer, Ishaan Suri grew up to become an artist in pursuit of excellence and innovation. His rendezvous with art started in the late 80’s. He began to take classes in instrumental music, studied western classical music on the piano, and self taught himself to play the guitar. A trained instrumental musician, and passionate about cuisine & culinary, creative design, creation of spaces and ambience, construction of buildings and homes, art flows through every speck of Ishaan’s life and work.
Ishaan’s photography has a marked influence of combining reality with dreams, light with shade and he gives his images a semi-realistic touch staying clear of abstraction or conceptual leanings. As far as the themes of his photography are concerned, he never shoots with a future goal or final concept in mind. He clicks pictures while walking on the streets, travelling with friends, and whenever he feels like capturing the sight in front of his lens.
His photos are self-explanatory about the world he lives in, walks through, and talks to. More on
