Anay Mann, Photographer/Artist/Curator

Art is the highest manner in which truth obtains existence for itself.

Almost from the time when specialized thinking about art and artist began, this thought was called aesthetic. Aesthetics takes the work of art as an object, the object of aesthetics, of sensuous apprehension in the wide sense. This apprehension is called lived experience. The way in which man experiences art is supposed to give information about its existence. Lived experience is the source that is standard not only for art appreciation and enjoyment but also for artistic creation. Everything is an experience.

Weather it's a commercial assignment, a magazine editorial or an art project this experience is what he brings to his work. The journey with photography began early in his school days & more seriously after he was granted the first photography fellowship from the India Habitat Center in 2003. He has honed his skills with Master classes across Europe & at art residencies in China & India. He often contributes to Forbes, Fortune, Wired, New York Times, Business 2.0, Time Asia, Newsweek, Travel&Leisure and has also worked with Der Spegiel, Stern, Life, Red Herring, GQ India amongst others. A portfolio of his work was also published in Le Monde2. His work can also be found in Connoisseurs' homes and private collections.
