I am an Indian photographer based in Kolkata. My journey of photography started since 2003 during a trek to the Everest Base Camp in Nepal. From then on, this passion became an integral part of my life. After realising that photography for me is now like breathing, I pursued the art to the utmost. I got myself trained in a number of workshops under various leaders in international photography .
I have already been featured in - Photojournale – China , Life Force Magazine –UK , BBC News , Feature shoot – USA , Quint Magazine , Dhodho Magazine , 121 Clicks , Exhibited in 5 International Foto Festival s in INDIA , CHINA , BELGIUM , BANGLADESH . Exhibited in numerous group photography exhibitions in India as wel as diffent parts of the world .
I believes that an artist's work must be good consistently to be considered as an art. I does not practice it just for the sake of aesthetics but for a cause. I take each shot to make sense, bear sense and hit the sensible viewers. I attempts to portray the moment that would tell a story of the time to the time to come.
According to me a photographer must be technically competent to use the various techniques to change a photograph from a mere snap to a snapshot of time and life. Photographs can be used to narrate a story, and thus have more to it than just being a work of art. I always been inclined in capturing life in all situations. Thus, human element makes for an integral part of my photography. People photography has been the stream that I followed but his hyperactive nature has always kept me in unrest..
Along with photography I have been mentoring young photographers since 2012 I am with a group of Kolkata based photography enthusiasts, started an initiative called “Click Start From Kalighat” aka CSFK. This initiative, under my guidance, has produced a number of highly acclaimed photographers.
At this moment, beside running CSFK, I am also engaged as the Chief Editor and Mentor of FOTOJAJS, an e-magazine on photography. For CSFK and FOTOJAJS, I have already conducted a number of workshops in different parts of India like Pushkar Fair, Sonepur Fair, Ladakh, Varanasi . Purulia, Kumbha etc.
Presently the Chief Mentor of the Organisation - " CSFK- Photography and FOTOJAJS .
