The new fine art photography collection from Yatin Patel
"SUTRA" - an ancient sanskrit (historical Indo-Aryan language 1500 AD) translated as "a thread or line that holds elements together." In this collection, Yatin reveals the beautiful textural fibers that are woven into the environments of present-day urban India, evocative of its ancient society and civilization at large.
After 15 days straight days of wonderful shows, Yatin Patel has pulled up the red carpet and gently removed his photographs from his collection Sutra from the walls. Yatin has pulled of what would seem to be impossible and made it look easy. Eleven local foundations hosted events at Yatin's temporary downtown gallery. A space filled with his photography of his hometown of Ahmedabad, India which is printed on a rare Japanese kozo paper. The space, known as "The Arcade" building, which was once an architecture firm; was transformed into a New York Style gallery complete with exposed brick, metals and wiring. The Arcade building was the perfect landscape to host his raw and gritty photography. Subtle props like old bicycle tires could be found under the photograph "Narrows", while a rusty AC unit was accompanying "Eras." What was once filled with photographs, culture and couture is now just an empty building waiting to be sold. How grand it was to all who took part in the wonderful event. The two weeks housed the likes of local celebrities like Annika Sorenstam and Adonal Foyle, both who held their personal foundations event at Sutra. Tens of thousands of dollars were raised for each of the eleven foundations, including an unquantifiable amount to networking and "friend raising." It will be hard to match an event like this again, but if Yatin has anything to do with it, this is just the beginning.
