DI­NESH KHANNA

Tehelka - - BOOKS - KHANNA

Shiv Ahuja has re­cently grad­u­ated from Delhi Univer­sity and has pur­sued mu­sic and con­cert pho­tog­ra­phy for the past three years. Per­haps it is be­cause he is a mu­si­cian him­self, he has been able to cap­ture and show­case the emo­tions and the high volt­age en­ergy of artists on stage. His un­der­stand­ing of what it takes to be in front of the cam­era has re­sulted in a dy­namic body of work. As In­dia’s live mu­sic scene rapidly evolves, Ahuja’s pho­tog­ra­phy, which ex­hibits a unique sen­si­tiv­ity to the va­garies of stage per­for­mance, has im­mense archival value — 10 years from now you’ll be able to trace a vis­ual his­tory of live mu­sic in In­dia.
