A motorcycle is an unlikely addition to an artist's equipment, but then idris ahmed is an artist with a difference. Using his bike and his camera to travel
remote landscapes and mindscapes, idris's photography takes you to a new plane. The playful joie de vivre of children on the snow covered slopes of spiti, the calm amid the cacophony of the kumbh, the brooding stillness of majestic mountains, the sheer power of stallions in full gallop, idris's camera brings us many stories...and if you look carefully enough, stories within stories. Each of idris's pictures is a personal paean to the spirit of freedom, harmony and to the power of life, lived in high places, remote, yet all too familiar, distant, yet at once banal. When not motorbiking across the mountains, idris lives in Delhi reading Ghalib and romancing the city through his viewfinder.
