Beyond Boundaries presents Laxmi Kaul and her journey with the people and nomads of Kashmir, where life is about simplicity, serenity and sincerity.

“After shooting in a highly turbulent & conflict–ridden area, I have realized that it is the everyday lives of the people living there that matter to me. They are the ones who makes me want to go back to and continue to narrate their stories. Their daily lives & cultures. I have discovered there is something special in the everyday; for one, we are alive,” said Laxmi Kaul.

What goes on around the borders?

Sometimes life is about the unplanned moments, the appreciation of nature and how civilisations interact.

Laxmi Kaul is a self -taught professional photographer, having started photography at a young age when she saw her father’s passion for making images.

Since then, she has never looked back.

Despite being a commercial photographer, she still holds people and documentary photography closest to her heart.

Laxmi connects with spirituality in daily life and travels with a patriotic zeal.

This photo is one of many beautiful shots that Laxmi Kaul is exhibiting at the Leica Galleries Singapore at Raffles Hotel Singapore from now till 5 December, 2016. Photo credit: Laxmi Kaul.

She believes the camera is her tool and photography is an extension of her very being.

Exhibition: 4 continents in 3D

Saturday, March 17th, 2012

Extremely realistic 3D imageries of people and places across 12 countries in 4 continents. I was amazed at the dimensionality of the imagery.

The free exhibition is from 14-29 March (10am to 7pm) at The Arts House.

The exhibition comprises a number of wall-mounted LG Cinema 3D TVs using battery-free glasses.

Each of the two cameras need to be aligned and adjusted manually for each shot.

Each of the two cameras need to be aligned and adjusted manually for each shot.

Each TV showcases a different set of imageries taken by award-winning Stefen Chow for the international Denis Group, a Singapore-headquartered company established in 1862 which is celebrating its 150th anniversary this year.

The stereoscopic imagery were taken using a pair of Nikon D7000 DSLRs mounted on a slider which allowed the distance between the two cameras to be varied whilst maintaining the carefully calibrated alignment between the two cameras.

The slider was in turn mounted on a tripod for stability.

The whole contraption was custom designed and built after a survey and evaluation by Chow found the quality of 3D pictures produced by consumer cameras inadequate for his liking.

He did not use the higher-end Nikon cameras because the minimum distance between the two lenses – when the two cameras were placed side-by-side – were bigger than that needed in certain shooting situations.

For each imagery, every setting (focus, white balance, exposure etc) had to be put on manual to ensure both cameras produced imageries with consistent focus and exposure – so that they could be merged into 3D imagery.

Chow told me that the time taken to set up the rig and prepare for the shot took at least 30 minutes. In all, he snapped more than 700GB of imagery for the project.

Who is Stefen Chow?

Stefen Chow, award winning photographer.Stefen Chow has been awarded in PDN, PX3 and was nominated for the PDN 30 and World Press Photo Masterclass.

Stefen has worked with Geo, Time Magazine, Wall Street Journal, Associated Press, Bloomberg News, Aurora Select, Cartier, Keppel Shipyard, Nikon and Shell International.

His works have been exhibited in cities including Los Angeles, Paris, Beijing and Singapore. He is an endorsed Nikon Professional with Nikon Singapore.

An accomplished adventurer, Stefen summitted Mount Everest, becoming one of the rare individuals to climb and photograph the mountain.
