ISLAMABAD - The Navajo Sandstones at Utah, a part of Colorado Plateau in the Northern Arizona of the United States, could never be shown as exuberant and mysterious as Adeel Ahmed has captured. Today (Monday) is the last chance to view his exhibition of photographs entitled 'Hidden at the Khaas Art Gallery, House No. 1, Street 2, F-6/3. Aasim Akhtar, the art critic, has put up the show together. Adeel Ahmed is an electrical engineer by profession but photography is his passion since his early youth. Nature has been his profound attraction that made him to keep on capturing diverse landscape in Pakistan and abroad. But, 'Hidden is the first-ever show of his creative marvels. The exhibits are themed around the light passing trough the sandstones the Colorado Rivers floodwater carved naturally. Navajo Sandstone is a geologic formation in the Glen Canyon Group that is spread across the US states of northern Arizona, northwest Colorado, and Utah. This rock formation is particularly prominent in southern Utah, where it forms the main attractions of a number of national parks and monuments including Zion National Park, Capitol Reef National Park, and Glen Canyon National Recreation Area. Navajo Sandstone frequently occurs above the Kayenta Formation and Wingate Sandstone, the other formations of the Glen Canyon Group. Together, these three formations can result in immense vertical cliffs of up to 2,200 feet (670 m). Atop the cliffs, Navajo Sandstone often appears as massive rounded domes and bluffs that are generally white in colour. The photographer Adeel has managed to capture the intricate details on his objects that make his output - the photographs look more glamorous as well as mysterious. Choosing the angle to shoot from and the aperture speed have made the real difference in all his photographs that makes the onlooker more curious to think and assume the invisible. It is not intentional to conceal the most part of the sandstones, but natural. I just used the organic light and the skill I have to capture them as they are there, says Adeel Ahmed while denying the computer-based manipulation to give finishing touch to his photographs. Adeel believes that his profession has helped him to groom his passion - the photography while the aesthetic soul has supported his carer as an electrical engineer to make the products more sophisticated and soothing to the onlookers. Aasim Akhtar refers to Adeel as a poet of images, of sentiments, of improvising a new way to speak and to act. Referring to the title of the exhibition, which is 'Hidden, Aasim said, the exhibition narrates the story of the earth creating itself. His photographs show the many different ways to look at an image - geologically, photographically and metaphorically. Adeel thinks in romantic rhythms and looks in rapturous privacy at the undulating and per-mutating canyon walls before him, as if he were to recast himself as a descendant gathered at the foot of a sponsoring mountain, drawn by a love-like primitive magnetism and convection currents calling all things back to their incarnate sources, Aasim states. There is amber, gamboge and bronze all apparent in the fine fibres of rock in Ahmeds work.
