A port is typically all machines, cargo, trucks, etc. - nothing pretty about it. But Pallon and his camera found beauty, colour and aesthetics in a difficult and drab location. He gave us stunning photographs which made us see the port in a completely new light.

Pallon is open minded and understands business requirements; He cooperates with you to identify what needs to be shown and goes several steps further to 'see' more. His combination of practicality, aesthetics and technical capability is rare and precious. Pallon's pictures continue to showcase our facility internationally.

Director, The Fine Art Company
Pallon and I go back a long way.
I met him when he first took portrait shots of me for my demo cassette covers about 20 years ago.

We finally got a chance to work together again last year when I was sourcing art and accessories for the Courtyard Marriott, Pune. Pallon was very quick to comprehend what I needed for the 350 guest rooms. We went on to collaborate on that project in the most efficient and professional manner. He belongs to the category of creative people that understands and respects timelines. It has been a pleasure working with him and I know 'The Fine Art Company' will be collaborating with Pallon sometime soon again.

Pallon does not look through the lens of a camera. He looks from a hidden window into the enchantment that is LIFE. He renders what we see with what we ought to.

An artist is only as worthy as the intrinsic individual that he is. His craft is of him a part.

I enjoy both remarkably!

The photographs of Pallon Daruwala explore architecture from its detail to its larger formal and dimensional qualities. The way architectural details, formal compositions, material aesthetics are aptly recognised and presented in his photographs, they present a rich understanding of the particular building they showcase. The spatial and tectonic potential of the building is beautifully articulated in his photographs, also producing great images.

As a photographer he recognises the visual capacity of the worlds we occupy and live in, and he engages well with the visual landscape, sense of perception and the story our eyes try (or miss) to tell us.

Pallon Daruwala is a quintessential photographer whose photographs have a visual quality and appeal that can truly be described as 'works of art'. I have known Pallon for over a decade and have always considered him as a photographer whose camera sees so much more than others do. He is versatile and experimental in his approach which is what makes him a cut above the rest in his profession. His photographs have a high aesthetic quality with a stamp of professional perfection. He has a flair for creating rustic landscapes and figurative compositions from our rich and diverse rural and urban spaces. His Rajasthan series were beautifully composed as were his renderings of Kutch and Bangalore's countryside. As an admirer, I look forward to Pallon's evolving photographic prowess in the years ahead.
PRABUDDHA DASGUPTA

I first met Pallon Daruwala in 2002, at a showing of his work in Bangalore. I remember the work, black and white images of interiors and still-lives, printed with remarkable sensitivity, in the most fragile, delicate tones… on a paper that had a sensual, tactile, handmade quality… and I was struck with amazement that I had accidentally just walked into the work of a master craftsman, a fine printer of black and white - the most rare and elusive of all creatures in the universe of photography that I inhabited. I was at that time in the process of moving to Bangalore and deeply saddened that the printer I had worked with for the past 8 years was going to remain behind in Delhi. So confronting these images on that Bangalore afternoon was a near revelation. I immediately sought out the maker to find out more about these beautiful prints and that’s when I met Pallon and he told me that they were digital prints, done on an inkjet machine sitting on his desktop.

My first response of course was disbelief. Where I came from 'digital' was a dirty word… part of a new age, instant gratification photo culture, which was pure anathema to someone who had honed his craft in the wet darkroom, taking days, sometimes weeks to perfect a single print. But whatever my training or background, there was no getting away from the wholesome yet fragile beauty of what was spread out before me… and that afternoon I believe was a turning point for the way I was going to think of a photographic image… and I have Pallon to thank for that.

Over the years as I got more and more involved with the digital universe, (much to the disappointment of many peers and fellow purists who considered my move to be a betrayal of all things pure in photography) Pallon remained a friend and helped me to hone my new craft. And I followed his work with great interest and enthusiasm, especially in the territory of architectural photography in which he excels. Using the dynamic play of light and darkness to create landscapes of form, Pallon’s work though always informed by a strong graphic and formal quality, is more about the spirit of the space than the space itself.

His new exhibition, "A Mill by the Sea" is testimony to that.

Mukesh Mills has a curious history since its devastation in a fire years ago, that makes it a very special place, especially for a photographer with leanings towards spaces and their interpretation. Normally a space is inhabited… Mukesh Mills has no inhabitants…since the fire, it has lain unused for the purpose that it was created. Sometime in the early nineties, its rotting, ravaged walls and surreal, post apocalyptic atmosphere, caught the attention of certain image makers, primarily from Bollywood, and the fashion industry, who discovered that they could use the space to make it whatever they wanted… a kind of fantastic wasteland waiting to be transformed into Disneyland. A dab of paint here and there, some fake graffiti and it became the background for a music video. A large open space facing the sea with the mill ramparts breaking the horizon, became the setting for a fashion shoot. With a few fake facades and a crane or two it became the setting for a scene of war devastation… or a horror movie…and so on. In other words Mukesh Mills became a space without its own character… its personality at any time defined by whoever was occupying it and the reason for the occupation became the face of the space, albeit temporarily.

It is this ephemeral nature of the space that is the subject of Pallon’s work. Dabs of fresh paint occupy vast areas of desolate devastation… traces of its intrinsic character conflict with its newly assigned ones, disappearing soon to give way to new ones… creating a new vocabulary of occupation, a sort of metaphor for the times we live in… a lover’s graffiti on the walls of a historical edifice...

With his unerring eye for telling detail, and his delectable sense of colour, Pallon gives us a glimpse into the life of an old mill by the sea… after it ceased to be a mill.

Pallon Daruwala's work emerges from a long engagement with experimentation over the last 10 years. He uses a digital SLR camera. The idea of treating the surface as a fine art canvas and generating layer upon layer of texture, assisted by computer aided duplications, creates a sense of re-manifesting known objects and spaces. This mode of conceptual art photography therefore deals as much with the object as it does ideas; photography is then a form of knowledge, a reckoning with everyday life that seeks to open up new dimensions about the medium as art practice. The well-explored post modernity of his work is also a cross-referencing act that photography initiates and creates through his inspirations.
SANDEEP KHOSLA
Architect
In my 8 years of association with Pallon Daruwala, I have continued to be mesmerized by the magical quality of his photography.

Pallon has shot over 20 of our projects, lending to each one a fresh perspective though his lens.

Pallon has a depth of understanding of architectural space, light and shadow that I find rare, and a mastery of technical skills for complex interior photography.

Apart from his immense talent and experience, he brings a great deal of professionalism and commitment to his art.

Pallon is in my opinion undoubtedly one of the best interior photographers in the country.
SANDEEP KHOSLA
Architect
It was with intrigue and delight that I viewed this latest body of work by Pallon Daruwala, their linear architectonic quality reminding me of the wonderful visionary drawings of Italian architect, designer and painter Massimo Scolari and the powerful hand rendered drawings of Japanese Architect Shin Takamatsu.

Pallon has taken a giant leap in this work boldly crossing over the world of commercial photography and into art, creating a compelling series of compositions that significantly alter the viewers perception of space, scale and order.

Aptly named “Vertical Horizon”, Pallon turns the horizon as we know it clockwise and then digitally mirrors the same, creating a marvelous visionary world of his own; his world of futuristic buildings, mysterious creatures, and symbolic forms.

The original subject matter in Pallon’s images is vast, and he finds inspiration (as he always has) in architectural construction sites, in fields, temples, urban panoramic cityscapes, highways and playgrounds. The rendition of his work is however very precise, always emphasizing a central vertical spine that ties these images with a unifying spirit.

The black and white compositions have a wonderful spatial quality; the manipulation of light and shadow, along with sharp contrasts in some and the deliberate grainy quality in others give them an ethereal and sublime feel.

Pallon constantly plays with the idea of perception, relativity and scale. Sweeping Panoramic views are thus manipulated into looking like abstractions up close, and details are zoomed out to form vast landscapes.

The viewer is deliberately disoriented with the alterations in scale but is at once eased with the centrality and balance in each of the frames. Multiple interpretations emerge as the vertical horizons in each work merge seamlessly into one another.

Pallon has always used dramatic angles and exaggerated perspective in his architectural and spatial photography, and he uses his vast experience in this field as well as in the world of digital photography to produce beautiful compositions that reference the scientific, spiritual and natural worlds.

Pallon has shot this light suffused project for us to great effect. He has captured the experience of a building communicating synergistically with the sky and the trees and the essential qualities of connectivity and lightness that the project stands for. His images for Nirvana have won us a slew of awards, the latest of which is Winner at the World Architecture Festival in Singapore in 2012.
S. N. AGARWAL

It was about six years ago that I was given a package of a dozen or so, 8x10 photographs to have a look at. They were striking images, beautifully composed and printed, of a warm residence. It was a space that I was only too familiar with, but could not recognize for a few seconds. Then it struck me that these were pictures of my own home! My interior-decorator friend Shernie had commissioned Pallon Daruwala and these were his images.

Towards the end of last year I received another set of photographs, this time from Pallon himself. Once again the pictures looked very familiar and I was overcome with nostalgia; they were stunning images of the Mukesh Textile Mills at Colaba in Mumbai.

This was the first textile mill built by the British in India in the 1870's. It is also the only mill in south Mumbai, and the only one by the sea. The large private dock is where boats came to unload bales of cotton and load yards finished cloth. These were ferried to the larger ships that were in outer anchorage in the Arabian Sea. I see not just the structures, but the Mill with life the way it was in full production, even before it came into our possession from 1975. The hundreds of men and women going about their daily chores, the clacking of bobbins in their looms, smoke billowing out of the tall chimney stack, sea-gulls gliding aimlessly above… And then all fell silent one day, in its unfortunate destruction in 1982.

Fortunately the façade still exists and has been shot as a background by almost every Bollywood and ad film producer in Mumbai. The beauty of the crumbling façade has been further livened by Pallon's vision of the space. The play of light & shade, the juxtapose of colours, the strong & dynamic compositions all coming harmoniously together.

These images of the Mukesh Mill, delves into the journey of my life. The play of shadow and light through the crumbling structures mesmerize you. These old pillars are like one's ambitions, still standing strong reaching skywards. Our deeds stack up like the lofty chimney. Our very shell is but an illusion, if we are not as strong as these century old exposed bricks. The long corridors remind you that there is always light at the end of the tunnel, however intense the darkness may be.

Mukesh Mills represented the glory days of technology in India... Pallon's images restore that glory.

We have worked with Pallon on multiple assignments and the experience has been great. He always seems to go about his shoots with a sense of ease making things look very simple. It is important for us to have a photographer that can keep the atmosphere calm, which Pallon does with ease.

Pallon has an ability to translate the clients brief quite comfortably into the end product.

His ability to get the colors right and the perfect angle for each shot is quite amazing. Most importantly it is an enjoyable experience working with Pallon.

Finally the pictures shot are of such high quality and class. We never tire looking at these shots again and again.

I have worked with Pallon Daruwala for capturing the distinctness of some of my projects and the brief given was not a simple one, The Architectural aspiration of the designer had to be captured and not merely the aesthetic aspect of the project.

Every time, Pallon has managed to mesmerize me with his talent and his narrative through the lens.

Pallon unfolds the hidden nuances of the design with his photography which may not be seen in the drawings or the manifestation of the building.
