Ramu Aravindan is a graphic designer and photographer based in Bangalore. His images deal with landscapes, places, objects, and the sense of space and locality they create. About his work he has this to say: “My central fascination with photography is a link I had made up, over time, between photography and the joy of moving around and looking at places—experiencing places. It’s a simple satisfaction and the ‘sense of seeking’ contained in that activity that drew me to photography and continue to draw me to it.” Ramu has worked on photography commissions for books, visual research, and design projects and runs a consultancy, Landeater Design, that creates design and content for communication and documentation projects. He also teaches photography as visiting faculty at art and design schools.holds a Masters in photography from the University of Calgary.

He is co-founder of VEDANZA Artists International in Luxembourg, where he now lives. He received early training in south Indian/north Indian music: vocal training (1970-1986) as well as string and percussion instruments. He also studied visual arts/design at the National Institute of Design, India (1984-1990). After the design studies, he traveled extensively in India and absorbed pretty well the heterogeneity of Indian sound environment and sound culture.
