His work has been shown at the prestigious Visa Pour L’Image in Perpignan, France, featured in The New Yorker magazine and is part of the collection at the National Portrait Gallery in London. Palani has been recognised with awards including World Press Photo, Picture of the Year International, CHIPP, Communication Arts, and Sony International.

About the Talk

Join us as renowned photographer Palani Mohan shares his personal exploration of the magic and miracles that surround us in his new book Watch with Wonder. Moderated by Sarah Green from Blue Lotus Gallery, this talk invites you to slow down, observe, and appreciate the extraordinary moments showcased in Palani’s 107 evocative duotone images. As you turn the pages, you will find yourself immersed in the magnificent Louvre Museum in Paris, exploring Cambodia's awe-inspiring Angkor Wat, traversing the desolate wilderness of the Arabian Peninsula's Empty Quarter, joining tribal gatherings in Papua New Guinea, and contemplating the timeless, preternatural otherness of Kashmir's Dal Lake, the Australian Outback, northern India's lunar-like Ladakh region and even Hong Kong’s waters.
