PHOTOGRAPHY, MY FIRST INTEREST
My dream was to become a photographer, but the fact that I got into designing of buildings, my interest in photography waned. I bought a Pentax MX Camera with the first scholarship I got when studying in Plus 2. I had a black and and white enlarger at home where I took prints. I am planning to get involved in photography again seriously.
I have never paid any photographer for doing the photographic documentation of my buildings. When my first project appeared in print in 2002, I had sought the help of Rajiv Krishna Menon to take photos since the editor of Inside Outside told me that the photos were not of printing quality. You can see the photos taken by him in the following link. https://www.bennykuriakose.com/vishram-by-the-sea
None of the photos in my website were taken by any professionals, they were taken by me or my clients or photos taken for marketing by clients or by one of the architects working with me.
Here is one photo of Laurie Baker designed house which appeared in the cover of the Malayalam Magazine Kalakaumudi, which I had taken in 1985. Some of my photos taken during that time has appeared in different magazines and newspapers.
