ARTICLE FROM DIGITAL SYNOPSIS

Indian photographer

Krutik Thakur

Captures amusing sunset

silhouettes that showcase

The orange setting sun as a

Tangible object people can hold,

Move and play with.

His beautiful, whimsical scenes

Depict people interacting with

the sun using different props and

situations.

They can be seen playing soccer

with the sun, fishing the sun out of

the ocean, storing it in a box,

using it as a basketball, a

motorcycle wheel, a kite and

sometimes gifting it to a friend.

Kurtik started as a hobbyist

photographer in 2017.

He learnt the tricks of the trade

via YouTube® whilst practising on

his friend’s camera.

He started sharing his work more

frequently, during which, one of

his images titled

“Sunset Football” (see bottom

left) went viral.

He finally bought his own camera

and continues to add to his

portfolio.
