The White Sand Series
In deepening her familiarity with the flesh, Aranka, spent a year traveling, photographing sand. Deserts and beaches from New Mexico to Dubai. “Everything that exists in nature exist in the body,” says Aranka alighted on the noted technical challenge of shooting white sand as a means of expanding her repertoire for both the observation and capture of surface and form in rendering states of transition. In White Sands, we note the balance angles and undulation, the textural qualities surface, and the serendipitous arrival of a desert storm.
Aranka Israni’s creations celebrate the honest expressions unique to her subject matter. Her method is rooted in a deep compassion for the individual and honors the source from which we are all an extension.
