NewsWritten by Somya Lakhani | New Delhi | Updated: November 1 2015 2:08 pm Raghu Rai Related News In 1965 a young man took a photograph of a donkey Its droopy face and big round eyes made it to The Times London and the 20-something old left behind his ambition of being a sitar player to become a photographer a documentarian For the past 50 years Raghu Rai has captured the entire gamut of life in India: from politics to industrial tragedies from spiritual leaders to renowned musicians artists and filmmakers The Magnum photographer shows no signs of slowing down at 73 And now in his latest photo book The Album Rai reveals his personal story through 200-plus images of his family and friends taken over the years The book includes pictures of a young Rai taken by senior photographer and his brother S Paul as well as photos of his four children his wife Gurmeet his friends like photographer Kishor Parekh writer Amrita Pritam sculptor Himmat Shah and painter Jatin Das among others Ahead of its launch at the Delhi Photo Festival on October 30 Rai talks about the “gap” that keeps him going how colour can become distasteful and publishing a bi-monthly photography magazine Excerpts: Tell us about The Album the people and moments you have captured in these photographs The Album is about family and friends the people closest to you I try to be a full-time photographer so I carry my camera everywhere Often when you capture something you feel good about it but when you look at your own work analytically you think “kaafi acha tha par woh baat nahi bani (It’s good but lacks something)” So you feel a gap and a creative person goes on because of that gap which can never be fulfilled So I come home with a gap and I meet my wife children friends I keep taking photos to fill that gap About a decade ago I began digitising and categorising my work under “family” “friends” “travels” and so on About three or four years ago Prashant (Panjiar) said to me: “Raghu you have been shooting your family and friends for years why don’t you do an exhibition” I replied: “You must be joking…apne dost apni family it’s not a good idea” But somewhere the idea tickled me and since I had already digitised it it made sense When I began work on it it made for a wholesome experience All the photos have not been taken by me in the book some have been clicked by my friends In what way was this a wholesome experience As photographers when we come back and edit our photos we relive that experience; remember conversations and incidents of that time You analyse your own character and behavioural pattern All the good and bad memories of the last 50 years flood back and you have to own them This makes it a wholesome experience for me All the photos are black and white Is this deliberate There were coloured photos also but I converted them into black and white Digital technology is so good and easy that you put any camera on auto focus auto exposure and it takes these flawless well-exposed pictures full of colours And that rang-birang is becoming such a vulgarity that sometimes with a vengeance I convert my pictures into black-and-white Raghu Rai’s wife Gurmeet; with fellow news photographer Kishor Parekh; Rai in his birthplace Jhang Pakistan during a visit in 1977 There are several pictures of your brother S Paul What impact did he have on your life and your career Paul is 12 years older to me so was Kishor (Parekh) When I started taking pictures they were big names Others were nowhere close to them So when I got interested in photography I was sandwiched between these two In that situation either you get crushed or you sprout between the two During the day we were warring enemies because Paul was chief photographer at The Indian Express Kishor was chief photographer at Hindustan Times and I was the chief photographer at The Statesman I became a chief photographer within a year-and-a-half These two were more experienced and in better control But it wasn’t like they were beating me – some days I gave better pictures some days they did I can say today that if they weren’t there I wouldn’t be here I wouldn’t be fighting for better work better awareness without them Did you have to struggle a lot in the early years I struggled physically but the photograph only happened when I was living in that moment of total awareness Today I don’t have that kind of ambition or need to prove (something) to the world so I do things with ease and sensitivity Who has been your toughest subject till date It has to be Mother Teresa She wasn’t fond of journalists and photographers running around and disturbing her space In the 1970s when I first met her she told me that I couldn’t shoot her the next day because it was Easter I was bent upon convincing her I said “Mother you say two things — one that you do seva and the other that you have to connect with Christ to rejuvenate yourself after seva I have seen you do seva and tomorrow you will be connecting with the Lord I have done half the story and the other half is left” Mother phas gayee She agreed on one condition that I will sit in one place Next day I reached and she sat me next to her I could only get a side profile It wasn’t good enough so I moved and broke that promise You had to prove yourself your integrity and intensity while doing it You are launching a bi-monthly photography magazine called Creative Image There are three-four commercial magazines at the moment and they’re replicas of each other The bulk of pages show photography that was done 50-60 years ago Our focus will be on India and Asia and then the world The works will be by masters and young photographers too So in the first issue which we launched at Delhi Photo Festival we have a series by a young guy who pretended to be a Syrian refugee and took photos as well as a series by James Nachtwey on Syria It’s going to be a print magazine not an online one A lot of young photographers come to me to show their work and they bring their laptops I tell them that this is not your work it’s a machine You have to carry a photograph similarly you should be able to hold a magazine in your hand and see it and look at it and if it’s good preserve it What are the other projects you’re working on at the moment I am doing a book on the Dalai Lama He is the love of my life he’s like a child People say that when he’s in meditation his spiritual energies encompass an area of three-four kms Sixteen years ago I was photographing him for Time magazine and before leaving he gave me a small stone which I kept in my camera bag One day years later I had a burning sensation in my chest and instinctively I strung that stone on a thread and wore it One day during a hectic assignment I felt uneasy I got it checked and the angiography revealed 90 per cent blockage in my arteries The doctors said we don’t know how you are still alive After the surgery I went to meet the Dalai Lama with wife and daughters When I thanked him [for the stone and its protection] he laughed and said “I can’t do these things” I complete 50 years in photography at the end of the year so Aleph is releasing a book to commemorate that I recently released a book a commercial assignment called India Through the Eyes of Raghu Rai I travelled across India in August and took these photos using a phone camera For all the
