ORLANDO, Fla. – Friday, September 9, 2011 – Orlando resident and photographer Yatin is taking an intriguing step to help local community-based organizations raise funds to support their programs and activities through the launch of “Sutra”, his first large-scale photography exhibition, debuting in the historic Arcade Building (120 N. Orange Ave,) Downtown Orlando on Saturday September 17, 2011.

Yatin’s goal is to engage the community with arts, culture and philanthropy. Yatin is offering the space, filled with his extraordinary collection “SUTRA”, to local foundations to host their own private events. Yatin states, “We have a very diverse group of foundations with great causes taking part in this event, and I am very excited to provide them a meaningful platform to help promote their cause.” “Yatin’s vision is extraordinary and we were honored when he invited us to be a part of his Orlando debut,” says Adonal Foyle, Founder and President of the Kerosene Lamp Foundation (KLF). “KLF emphasizes empowerment as the way forward for young people and the messages in Yatin’s art reinforce that concept making “SUTRA” the perfect backdrop for our fall fund-raising event.” With his work “SUTRA”, Yatin reveals, through stunning life-sized prints, the beautiful textural fibers that are woven into the environments of present day urban India, evocative of its ancient society and civilization at large. Sutra borrows its name from the ancient Sanskrit “SUTRA”, translated as “a thread or line that holds elements together.” Each print uses custom inks printed on large pieces of handmade, Japanese kozo paper – a process that ensures each print will be exclusive.
