Raj Manickam is a Photographer living in the Vail Valley. His engagement between image and story makes Raj Manickam's work so singular. He strives to shine a light on the reality of the human experience through composition and honest storytelling. Working within a unique "triangle" of context, Raj brings a synthesis of Fine Art, Story Telling, and Photo Journalism to his uncommon photography in modern pictorial circles. From spectacular landscapes to humorous everyday scenes and deeply personal moments, Manickam maintains a lightness of touch and an eye for the truth that sustains the baffling balance between the obscure and the everyday. His work appeared at University of Massachusetts, Lincoln Gallery in Loveland, CO., Hillard Gallery in Kansas City, Sangre de Cristo, Pueblo, CO., and several other galleries. His story was featured in Vail Magazine and several other publications. His fine arts photographic works, the 'Spices' series, are currently being exhibited in the History Museum, Colorado.
In his own words: “For years, I have noticed the images others might let pass without a second glance. My photography starts with the art of observation, which comes from paying attention to my environment. I use the element of the witness consciously. My photos range in subject from the environment to human interest depiction. These images often partner with essays that tell even more of the narratives. Fundamentals of fine art, abstract, storytelling, and deep awareness emerge in a variety of my frames. With photography, I sometimes plan, and at times, I wander. Often, I also saunter in the wrong direction. I am drawn to places where I am primarily in quietude, even amongst people.
