An Eye for Detail
Tamma Srinivasa Reddy (born 1968 in Andhra Pradesh, India) is a gifted technician. Interest in photography had its inception in his infancy. As a child it was his fantasy that later shaped itself into a personal etiquette with all possible efficacy in the art of taking photographs. The urge has been kept alive till date. His amateurish stint in photography meta morphosed into a serious professionalism from 1984 onwards. Nature has become Reddy’s teacher. His interest in making portfolio series on the indigenous tribes and pastoral life received a great fillip very soon. As a student of social work his field study during 1992 took him into the world of tribes of Andhra Pradesh. The academic mandate juxtaposed with his ability in the art of taking photographs came very handy during period.
