Abul Kalam Azad is gradually shifting back to the high surface quality images – mostly made with large-format analogue cameras – in his most recent works and his ongoing projects. However, the convergence of digital and analogue techniques still exist in his works, but are less of an experimental nature and more in the nature of a chosen and sure visual language, concerned more with the image than with the formal implications of the medium. The thematic continuity is also palpable, with micro-history, feminine nature, anthropological and cultural nuances, and other previous themes continuing to be a presence, and further, interacting more with each other. His current projects primarily focus on a search inside South-Indian cultures, and base themselves on ancient literature, folklore, and rituals.
