In this issue

As we embrace the New Year we are very excited to expand our horizons. To begin with you will see a whole new reinvented version of Digital Platform. From 2017 you will be presented with interesting profiles, intriguing stories and edgy visuals every day. Other than that we are collaborating with Chatterjee & Lal gallery in Mumbai where we are showcasing Fine Art Fashion Photography during the Focus Festival. And you will see Platform on stage as well through various experiences.

Our Cover Story of our first issue of 2017 features one of the most prolific photographers of our time. Bharat Sikka is versatile, supremely talented and a visual storyteller. This year alone we will see him exhibit two diametrically opposite bodies of work. And along with that he will publish his very first book. For listed we explored artists that have had a shift in their practice. Each of the artists we have featured be it Mithu Sen, Sudarshan Shetty, Gauri Gill, Bharti Kher, Jitish Kallat and Sooni Taraporevala all have introduced a new dimension to their sensibility and in the bargain have created astounding art.

As always we also feature emerging talents that have impressed us with their vision and craft. Be it Vikram Massey and his acting skills or filmmaker Baudhayyan Mukherji and his debut Hindi feature The Violin Player, a moving story about how art elevates one being, or My Beta Does Computer things, Sanjay Manaktala’s debut book. All have interesting stories and a promising future ahead of them.

We also feature Karan Johar who tells us why he is an unsuitable boy and he shares snippets from his journey so far in the film industry. Afrojak gives us a little insight into his world of music and beats. And Aditya Roy Kapur and Shardha Kapoor share their experience working on Ok Jaanu, a Mani Ratnam film directed by Shaad Ali.

people, communities, landscape might be part of his repertoire but at the heart of it, the entire image is what resonates and draws him in. one of the most versatile indian photographers, bharat sikka’s artistry is intellectual, deep and captivating. each image makes you think, feel, and builds a mystery, and that’s the beauty of his craft. his style has undoubtedly influenced many photographers and his subjects have always had a story. 2017 will see him exhibit two completely differing bodies of work.

conscious acting vikrant massey

thankfully, stardom hasn’t hit vikrant yet. he is humble, grounded, bursting with opinion on everything and loves good conversations. his on-screen debut as ranveer singh’s mucker in vikramaditya motwane’s lootera was something that flipped his life around—interestingly it was a role that he had almost lost.

the violin player

two men have made bauddhayan mukherji the filmmaker that he is, today. one lived till 49 only because he had bauddhayan with him, and the other changed the course of his life without even knowing. the first was his father, a physically-disabled poet, so all he gave bauddhayan was books and an immense love for literature. the other was satyajit ray, whose book ekei bole shooting showed him what he wanted to do in life.
