rajmohan. Ode to the anatomy the buildings in New York and the beautiful symphony of line and form they embody, both alone and in relationship to their neighbours. 

“Architecture aims at Eternity.” – Christopher Wren.

The course of history has seen the emergence, subsequent pre-eminence and eventual disappearance of things ranging in scale from stars to animal species to microscopic organisms. In this cosmic timeline, the achievements of human beings are no more than minute blips. Even great accomplishments in human history which were considered during their time to be eternal, such as the Roman Empire or the hanging gardens of Babylon, came to an end. 

When I moved to New York from Australia, I was immediately struck by the magnificence of the architecture in New York City; much as I imagine our ancestors might have marvelled at their contemporary wonders like the Lighthouse at Alexandria or the Colossus of Rhodes.

This exhibition is an ode to the anatomy the buildings in New York and the beautiful symphony of line and form they embody, both alone and in relationship to their neighbours. However like all things, these structures, despite their feats of design and engineering and their promise of longevity, will eventually cease to exist. These images represent a record of their existence and their beauty and an acknowledgement of the finite nature of their being.

Rajmohan is an Australian photographer based in New York. His work has been shown in exhibitions in the USA, Europe and the UK, most recently: Rome Art Week (Rome, Italy), AlterWork Studio Gallery (New York, USA), Sala La Polaroid (Cadiz, Spain), Camera 79 Art Gallery (Rome, Italy), Analog Photography Festival (Barcelona, Spain); Lillian E. Kraemer Gallery (New York, USA); Blue Moon Camera and Machine (Portland, USA); Fazenda Gallery (London, UK); and Soho Photo Gallery (New York, NY). Rajmohan’s photographs are held in several private and corporate collections in Australia, Canada, Europe and the USA. He was the recipient of a SCNY Award for photography in 2018.
