I am a photographer based in Bangalore, India.
My photography is about exploring life. And it is indeed difficult to classify one’s style into silos when it is all about life. When I travel, walk about, read a book or watch a movie, compositions and frames flash before me. I believe that our everyday life is a series of frames stitched together by the thread of time; some mundane, some interesting and some rather extraordinary.
I am passionate about people photography – everyone has a story that is untold and submerged by the daily struggle for existence. Tradition, culture and communities fascinate me. My travel to unexplored corners of the earth captures the pure intensity of nature and how it influences the life of the local people. Out there on the streets and in public places, it is about capturing those instant possibilities thrown up by a combination of chance, an inquisitive mind and a camera at hand.
Chance, mind, and camera – well, that defines my take on photography.
