Fashion Weds Art Through His Lenses

“Taking a picture is therapeutic; it is like meditation,” says R. Burman. No wonder this man, who puts his heart and soul in his work, is one of the most coveted lens man in the world of fashion. From fashionable New York to enthralling India, Burman has captured the crème de la crème of brands and the fashion fraternity. Some of the work that he is quite proud of himself include photoshoots of Lisa Haydon, Alia Bhatt, Shraddha Kapoor and Nawazuddin Siddiqui.

A graduate from Brooks Institute in California, Burman honed his skills under some of the best photographers such as Steven Klein and Mark Seliger. Having worked extensively with Vogue India and other A-list magazines like GQ, Marie Claire and Elle, Burman’s understanding of fashion goes beyond the capturing of a pretty face. His work reflects the innate versatility and allure of the model and her surroundings.

He has also worked quite closely with Myntra for the Roadster brand two years ago. Power-packed, unconventional and with a raw appeal – the campaign with Ranveer Singh turned quite a few heads when it saw the light of the day.

Burman’s love for photography began early in life when he clicked pictures with his humble camera and captured the world around himself. It is his out-of-the-box thinking that has made him famous amongst Indian brands and the Bollywood fraternity.

Burman’s first international exhibition was in 2014 at the annual arts and culture festival held at St Moritz Art Masters in New Delhi, along with the work of his artist parents. In 2015, his solo work was exhibited at the same gallery.

With both his parents being painters and artists, the influence of art in his pictures is almost genetic, as he likes to say. And for him, art can be anywhere and in anything. Burman’s work philosophy is grounded in the every day, in the beauty of the ordinary: “My work is inspired from the urban elements, locks, windows, roads, concrete, etc. While most photographers like to capture typically beautiful scenes and elements, I like to photograph the ugly and still find beauty there.”
