A Matter Of Faith
Published: Volume 21, Issue 8, August, 2013

Moments of prayer. A dedication to the divine. Reflections of belief. Three photographers train their lenses on women from different communities and their religious expression. Verve presents snapshots of the eternal search for serenity

Travel photographer Hari Menon is known to capture images from day-to-day life and render them immortal. Hailing from the beautiful village of North Paravur in Ernakulam, Kerala, this self-taught artist launched his photography career in Mumbai and has since won several distinctions in his field.


Kolkata-based Sudip Roy loves the aesthetics associated with human faces which speak eloquently of their experiences. His tryst with photography began in his youth when his father gifted him a Kodak KB10. And, to date, his romance with his city, its flavours and ancient and modern architecture, the old market and faces continues.





The New Zealand-born, now London-based lensman has travelled and photographed a variety of subjects in over 50 countries and has a particular interest in faith and its expressions in the different cultures and religions of the world. On one of his trips to India, Pemberton traversed over 14,000 km on an Enfield motorcycle. His other journeys here have only reinforced his love for the diversity and intensity of the vast Indian experience.
