Talk about fun in the sun – a photographer makes art out of sunsets.

Krutik Thakur, 21, painstakingly sets up scenes where the Sun becomes a prop – and gets people to pose in silhouette interacting with it.

Based in Dahanu, a small seaside town in India, his work includes models using the Sun to fish, as a cricket ball, as an ice cream and to plug into as a power source.

Krutik says he started by borrowing cameras from friends and family and experimenting.

He explains: “One day I was at the beach with two kids and my cousin's camera and implemented the setting to shoot a sunset silhouette, which I found out while practicing.

“By changing camera angles, I captured a series of images of them sharing sunset. The result amazed me and I was very much happy with my attempt in this.

“Since then, I took complete advantage of living by the coast. I wanted to travel, but the pandemic didn’t let me explore more places, so I started to shoot at the same place with the same main character, the Sun, but with different ideas.

"There has been use of props and cardboard, and lots of failed attempts behind every single work, but I never thought that shadows will bring light in my life.”
