Description Fatehpur Sikri is a city and a municipal board in Agra district in the state of Uttar Pradesh, India. The city was founded in 1569 by the Mughal emperor Akbar, and served as the capital of the Mughal Empire from 1571 to 1585. After his military victories over Chittor and Ranthambore, Akbar decided to shift his capital from Agra to a new location 23 miles W.S.W on the Sikri ridge, to honor the Sufi saint Salim Chishti. Here he commenced the construction of a planned walled city which took the next fifteen years in planning and construction of a series of royal palaces, harem, courts, a mosque, private quarters and other utility buildings. He named the city, Fatehabad, with Fateh, a word of Arabic origin in Persian, meaning 'victorious.' it was later called Fatehpur Sikri. It is at Fatehpur Sikri that the legends of Akbar and his famed courtiers, the nine jewels or Navaratnas, were born. Fatehpur Sikri is one of the best preserved collections of Mughal architecture in India.
Inge Johnsson, Frisco (Dallas/Fort Worth area) Member Since November 2009 Artist Statement I have been photographing the beauty of North America, its natural scenery and its cities, for over 20 years. As you can tell from my portfolio, my travels have taken me to many parts of this continent as well as other fantastic places around the globe. My photographic work has won awards and has been published in books, calendars and magazines.
Originally from Sweden, in beautiful Scandinavia, I moved to the United States in 1993. I have primarily lived in the Seattle and Dallas areas, and currently reside in Frisco, Texas.
My portfolio is mostly in color, now using a full-frame digital SLR after shooting film for many years. I touch up my “digital negatives” in Adobe Lightroom & Photoshop to recreate what I felt and saw when the capture was made, and to make the images ready for printing.
I do enjoy many types of photographic subjects and styles, but it is my love for the natural world that really gets my heart pumping and creative juices flowing. Some of my influences are Ansel Adams, David Muench and Jack Dykinga. When exploring the natural world around me, I always try to capture the essence of time, place, and of course light!
