- Kumar Ale
Kumar Ale is the Managing Director and a founder member of Shilpee Theatre since 2006. By profession, he is a photographer.He started photography when he was 13. He has seen black and white era transforming to colour pictures, reel development and colour lab into digital photography. Till 2050 photography was a business for him as he was doing professional photography in his colour lab.After that he started his freelancing career and he started to click art and literature based photography because he thought artists, poets, writers, are the property of the nation. Their photo should be clicked and archived with equal importance. During his closeness towards art and literature, he started clicking photos of plays and theatre. From the very beginning of his theatre photography he had a deep sense of lights used in play so he started clicking pictures without using flash light. Later it became the culture. He became close to theatre because he sees beauty in various lights used in the theatre. Light is a crucial element in photography and so in theatre thats why he finds interconnection between theatre and photography.
