Tomance in Red Stone is an appreciation of architecture of Islam in India at a level removed from the formal, as articulated surface. In his photographs Yashwant Pitkar presents architecture as a feast of craftsmanship, as an enduring romance with shape and stone, in its unending variations. An architect first, then a photographer, Pitkar's images reflect his love and admiration for the buildings of Delhi, Agra and Fatehpur Sikri, which he captures in a way he knows best, up close and personal.Pitkar's unique photographic gaze identifies with that of a Mughal miniature painter, or a Company artist, taking the viewer close to the buildings, enough to shut out the dominating forms right into the aesthetics of surface. For a visitor to these buildings, the photographs allow a return, a recollection of architecture as a phenomenon, giving a sensual experience of the visit, here is an effective feel for the infinite craft.
