AN INTRO
Born in 1961, MADHU SARKAR was still in his tender teens when he identified photography as the medium of his artistic expressions.
His early exposure to various forms of art and their exponents influenced and nurtured the seeds of artistry that was already within.
And over the years, his relentless efforts towards mastering his chosen medium have made him a creative photographer of repute.
Crises are nothing unusual in an artist’s life. And a significant phase of MADHU SARKAR’S career is marked by an intense struggle against severe odds.
But refusing to resign, he stood resolute against the tricks of circumstances.
This reinforced his confidence and sharpened his insight into life like the edge of a razor, teaching him to draw from the vast reservoir of strength and inspiration latent in him.
The photographic works of MADHU SARKAR are characterized by a unique blend of gloom and grandeur, captured adroitly by the artist’s remarkable sense of form and content.
Photographed with a burning passion and spontaneity, his creations are a true reflection of his times, interpreted and coloured in the light of his own subjectivity.
Influenced particularly by socio-political turbulence in West Bengal in the 1970s,
His repertoire represents one of the finest portrayals of the strange fear and pathos that arise out of the struggle between human sensibilities and a rapidly changing ideology.
MADHU SARKAR has successfully made use of some striking surrealistic imageries. Often transcending the parameters of grammar and attempting to explore beyond the limits of ordinary human consciousness.
Art is that form of emotional sensation where we can always enjoy and grasp it’s beauty and depth even in the absence of the artist.
The spirit of that particular form of art quickly gives us a sense of ecstasy, which is beyond explanation. True art never goes without a quick sense of spiritual quality.
And after visualizing a form of art we can always immediately come to know about a particular society that is, its creative entity and its artists. The profundity of a society is related to its art and creativity.
His media is photography. Like all other visual art there is no exception depending on seeing things in a fresh way and then being able to transform his awareness into the final image with sufficient skill to realize his vision.
The essence of photography is in the expression of emotions like any other art, which has no limitations.
He also expresses those emotions, which share with the mass, and not those which are his own emotions; and he is well aware that he is not only a communicator; he is concerned with something else.
The real desire to create something has to be distinguished from the desire to create something with a hidden and disguised communicative potential.
The Photo-Artist says what the mass want to say, but are unable to do so without his aid.
In this sense his relation to the mass is not merely a by-product of his aesthetic experience but an integral part of this experience itself.
This is something more than communication from him to the mass; this is collaboration with his beholder that is his “CREATIVITY”.

CREATIVE ACHIVEMENTS
Soft spoken and inwardly directed, MADHU SARKAR loves to let his works, which have won him accolades in countries like Austria, France, U.K, Germany, Hong Kong, Japan, Korea, Romania, Croatia etc.
He has also received several National and International Awards, and has over 1000 acceptances in National and International salons to his credit.
Ministry of Information and Broadcasting, Government of India, Award (1991), Ministry Of Health & Family Welfare, Govt. Of India, Award (1995), UNESCO Award (1991), Romanian Gold Medal (1992),
Then again he received the FIRST AWARD from Ministry Of Information and Broadcasting, Govt. of India in the year 1998.
Pusan Korea Award (1992),
All Japan Award (1992 & 2006),
Bangladesh International Award (1997),
World Bamboo Congress (2004),
Croatia Gold Medal Prizes For The COLLECTION (2006) is a few recognitions for his extraordinary talent and dedication besides countless others.

AKADEMI AWARD
STATE LALIT KALA AKADEMI, LUCKNOW, Uttar Pradesh, INDIA has awarded AKADEMI AWARD to Madhu Sarkar in the year 2007.

CONTRIBUTION
He was the first editor of a Bengali Photographic Magazine named “PHOTOGRAPHY CHARCHAA”.
Another trait of his personality is he has a conspicuous writing skill about photography, not only in the Technical Field but also in the aspect of Visual Art.
And there he is highly innovative and he has some appropriate direction towards the development as well as promotion of photography in the form of visual language.
He did as Director-Photographer of a production of CALCUTTA DOORDARSHAN of a very famous drama of Sukumar Ray’s OBAAK JOLPAAN – Mr. Satyajit Ray & Mr. Mrinal Sen, 
The Internationally famed Film Directors, highly praised the quality of MADHU SARKAR’s STILL DRAMA “OBAAK JOLPAAN”.
Apart from many other Audio-visuals done by MADHU SARKAR, was an interesting Audio-Visual named RABI BABUR GAN BANAM RABINDRA SANGEET – a unique production of Mr.Partha Ghosh – the great elocutionist.
And also did a documentary film on Conservation of Forests & Wildlife in West Bengal produced by Forest Dept., Government of West Bengal.
Always his direction is in a straight line; otherwise he would have been marked by shunts and detours.
Actually, since his childhood, he strived for the realization of his creative attitude along a direct line, and developed a courageous character.
He also delivered lectures and demonstrating Visual Art through the medium of photography in different Photographic Clubs and Societies all over INDIA & ABROAD.
In addition to all these, he is one of the Faculty Members of different Photographic Workshops, which are organised by different Institutions.
To share his experiences with his vast literacy on Visual Art & Communication, he founded NATIONAL ACADEMY OF PHOTOGRAPHY (NAP) where he conducts Workshop based Intensive Courses on Photography in the year 2003.
At NATIONAL ACADEMY OF PHOTOGRAPHY, creativity is the mantra… educating from a whole new point of view…
Madhu Sarkar believes the eternal power of creativity that finally determines one’s strength as a Perfectionist.
By coupling this power with a proper understanding of one’s dream, he designed different intensive courses on Digital Photography for the new generation students to give the distinctive edge in the field...
In this endeavor, Madhu Sarkar’s brain storm is to arrive at aesthetically and logically sound concepts about Professional as well as Creative Photography.
He is the Founder & Hony. Chairman of PERSONA-International, an International Photography Club, A Home of Image Makers.
And a regular interaction with the eminent Personalities with an inclusion of publishing a periodical
“Communiqué” based on Visual Communication and Digital Art.
His ideas and improvisation of his creative media gives an unlimited wisdom to his students.

This club is a means of expression for the talent that yearns to sprout from within you.
Its primary concern is to love photography as a self-expression media or as a profession.
However, the club promotes photography as a powerful art form and share one’s artistic as well aesthetic experiences.

HIS FEELING
He has some awareness programme about Nature & Environment.
His philosophy is "We the human beings are the product of NATURE and EMOTION". 
He is impulse badly by the different pollutions in our nature as well as society, that’s why, he would like to aware mass about a pollution free life-style.
And above all he retains sufficient initiative to look for another approach if the first attempt proves inadequate.
Basically, he has an attitude of searching - search towards life, search towards human nature and has a marked degree of understanding his tasks and problems directly.
And also he can look straight in his own field and to speak the truth,
the truth of life as well as death . . .

The Visual Art requires the capacity for lateral thinking together with recognition that
the Creative Process is a State of Continuous Flux.

I was born in Bangladesh and by profession I'm an Architect. 

I have started loving Photography since 1992, when I saw some master's work and I realize this is my world. 

I am self taught, I learned photography by reading, experimenting and making mistakes. 

Unavailability of Film in my Home country, In 2007 I started working in digital and it was this new technology that helped transform me from a photographer and into an artist. 

After a lot of thinking and struggling, I concluded that what I really wanted to do was create images with life, not capture photographs. 

I have continued to explore many different subjects and styles as my vision constantly changes. 

So after much hard work, and with a change in my thinking, 

I transformed myself into an artist. 

Early on in my career people would tell me to pick just one thing, focus on it and become known for it. 

Some suggested that I should choose landscapes and stick with that. 

However that advice never rang true for me, I did not want choose one thing and I believe that you must do what you love or you'll never be successful. 

I like to focus on my subject and my vision, not on my equipment or the processes. 

So I shoot simple and light, carrying just what I need. 

I work alone, I cannot relax if someone is with me and I feel like I'm holding them up, even other photographers or my family! 

And I must not have any other commitments for that day because I do not want to feel rushed or have to quite at a certain time.
 
I cannot be creative if there are any distractions or constraints on me. 

Photography, for me, is a way of life and a fantastic one. 

And if it is a 'way of life' for you, you are passionate about it every moment of the day - and often in your dreams, as well. 

That's what it is for me - and more.

Former Tresorier de la FIAP

Former Member of Board Director FIAP

PHOTOGRAPHIC CAREER
In 1969, I acquired a racing license in Montlhery near Paris. Motorsport was my dream, but without sponsors and support it is not so easy. 
My budget was not enough to subject me to the material battle any longer. 
Tied up by motorsport, I got myself a SLR camera and switched from racing to photography. 

At first it took a little practice, but I was soon able to gain some success by the drivers bought my photos or the well-known long-distance pilot Herbert Müller even used my recordings for his autograph card. 
Photography has been my constant companion ever since. As a freelancer at the local newspaper, not only sports photography was one of my tasks.

In 1975 I joined the AFD - Fotoclub Dietikon as a member. The following year, I was elected technical director at the General Assembly. 
I only worked for one year in this office. 

For at the next General Assembly, the members elected me President of the AFD. I stayed in that position for the next 10 years.
In September 1977 I traveled to Africa for the truck company SAURER from Arbon, which unfortunately no longer exists today. 
The company had sold a large number of trucks and buses to Central Africa. The vehicles were shipped from Genoa to Douala, Camerun. 
My task was to do a reportage of the transfer. Thanks to a sympathetic boss who released me indefinitely, I could accept this assignment. 

It was a big adventure, especially the almost 4 weeks in the bush from which I returned shortly before Christmas after almost 3 months. Since SwissAir pilots always took my exposed films to Switzerland at intervals, 
I could already admire the anniversary calendar on my return, which almost exclusively included my photos. 

In the years 1980 - 1983 I led several photo courses for the leisure commissions of neighboring communities Fahrweid and Unterengstringen.
Had I been working in a tourism company in the administration so changed this on February 1, 1978 abruptly. 

I have been given sole responsibility for advertising and catalog design. 
Apparently, my boss was fed up with always hearing how bad the recordings are and what you could better present the catalog. 
Of course, the creation of new catalogs of our projects at home and abroad was part of the design of the catalog.

At the 1987 General Assembly, I retired after 10 years as President of the AFD. The board of SAPV-ASPA (today PHOTO SUISSE) had already worked on me to come to them. 
So I was elected at the delegates' meeting in the spring of 1987 on the board of the national federation SAPV-ASPA - today PHOTO SUISSE.

Already at the 1975 FIAP Congress in Andora our President Ruth Härtel informed about the intention to organize the congress in Switzerland in 1999 as this is the 50th anniversary of FIAP. 
At the 1st FIAP Congress, held in Berne on June 17-19, 1950, the spiritual father and leader of the International Association of Photographic Art (FIAP)

Maurice VAN DE WIJER launched the FIAP.

Unfortunately, our president was not able to organize the congress. She died suddenly after a short illness before even the first meeting took place. 
The central board PHOTO SUISSE showed no great enthusiasm to organize the congress anyway. Ruth was not just our president but a friend. That's why I took it for granted to volunteer to carry out her last great wish. 

Finally, the board agreed if I take the lead. Individual board members gave me their support. I agreed, but I did not know what I had actually accepted. 
The majority of the pledged support remained with the commitment, my only leisure activity was now called "Organization FIAP Congress 1999". 
The original idea of Ruth to hold the congress in Vevey proved impossible. With luck, I was able to agree with the congress hotel Seepark in Thun. 

But the hotel was not the only one, it also had a corresponding social program to be organized and above all, it requires sponsors. The latter was a particularly hard nut. 
The director of Nikon Switzerland was of the opinion that we have nothing to do with it, that is international, write it to Japan. 

In addition, the Biennale Black & White had to be organized and the catalog created. Some points in the program led to the Musée suisse de l'appareil photographique in Vevey, there was a fun evening at Raclette in a chalet in Gruyères, 
a boat trip to the Ballenberg openair museum and the opening of the Biennale Black & White in Winterthur. In the end everything worked out. And if even today I hear voices from the participants of Thun, then everybody liked it. 

During the organization, I was in close contact with the General Secretary of FIAP. He encouraged me to run for Congress at the Bureau for a vacant office. 
To my surprise, I was elected by a large majority. I was already an honorary member of the AFD and PHOTO SUISSE and, to my great joy, I was also honored with HonEFIAP at the congress in Thun.

At first I was a member of the FIAP DB, at the congress Hungary I was elected Trésorier. My work in the presidency made me very happy. 
Unfortunately, there was a change of ownership in the business and the requirements of the new boss were extremely high. 

It was unfortunately no longer possible for me to do my duties in the presidium conscientiously. 
I would still like to be a member of the Bureau today, but because of my job situation, I felt forced to resign at the 29th Congress in Zilina, Slovakia.

During my time as a member of the FIAP DB I was twice invited by Vietnam to participate as a member of the Jura at their international salon. 
Another juror event was an international youth competition in Paris and various competitions in Switzerland.

Today I'm retired but still connected to photography. 

For what I lacked the time I could now participate in international salons. 

In the meantime I have reached the EFIAP award, I expect EFIAP / b and for EFIAP / s I already fulfilled all conditions.

Unfortunately, chf has to wait for MFIAP because FIAP has re-scheduled the waiting period after EFIAP at three years. The required port foil is already ready. 
My portfolio "Flexible Kriszta" was created during a visit of Kriszta in Switzerland in my small studio. 

I met her at a nude photo camp in Hungary where I'm helping a friend. I was impressed by the agility of Kriszta, a shoot was enough to create the series.

In addition to photography, I am equally impressed by the electronic image editing for which I can now spend more time.
