I lived in Manhattan for about 15 years back in the late 60’s and 70’s. Since then I have returned many times. And every time I am there I am always amazed at the new buildings that seem to sprout up like weeds. For many years the architecture was not particularly exciting. To me Chicago was the city in America for exciting and innovative architecture. Well, that has changed, and very dramatically.

On a recent trip a few weeks ago my head was constantly looking up. There is a building boom in New York unlike any I have seen before. The creativity and brashness is so exciting. I have tried to capture some of this in the series of black and white photographs I call ‘Searching for the Light’.

SudheerA teacher taught Sudheer an invaluable lesson: “Good photography is all about seeing, not about the equipment.” This unique approach landed him a one-man show at New York’s prestigious, The Light Gallery, and an invitation to be the first photographer ever to exhibit at Tiffany’s. Over the years, Sudheer continues to show his work and it can be seen in many corporate collections. He recently lived in San Miguel de Allende, Mexico; a world-famous artist colony. While living there he published Dreaming in Color: a Photographer’s Love Affair with Mexico. He now lives in Marin where he continues to explore with his camera.
