Poet and critic E.V. Ramakrishnan writes of MP Pratheesh’s photographs:
An Amorphous Album of the Elemental
Pratheesh’s stark images in black and white stitch the world of the seen and the unseen into a fluid continuum. He frames the minimal at its moment of transition to the infinite and the boundless. The series as a whole is a tribute to the idea of the rim, the edge, the brink as a moment of epiphany when the world takes on a different shape, where possibilities erupt from nowhere. Light flickers expectant, stubborn, as the grainy world of the fallen and the discarded cling to life and affirm their being. They belong to a larger cycle of ruin and renewal, an amorphous album of the elemental etched on the black soil of beginnings. As I was watching these images one more time before writing these words, a black flying insect came and sat on one of the images, merging into it, and suddenly it figured out something for me which I had only vaguely felt.
