Let there be light....explores the beauty of nature as captured through the lens of Mahesh Nair. Light, unquestionably, is the most critical component in most art forms, including photography. It is also an essential part of life itself! By using light to dramatize and highlight the beauty of nature, these photographs paint a unique picture of the natural world around us. The book, however, goes beyond showcasing nature’s beauty. It explores the meaning of light in different facets of our life through the writings of eminent experts. The book journeys through the importance of light in artistic fields like cinematography, painting and dance to the meaning of light in physics and even eye surgery. Light has a great place in philosophy and this is captures through appropriate hymns from the Rig-Veda. In essence, light as the giver and preserver of life on earth is brought out thematically in every page of this book.
