About me

Born in 1988, Madras, India.

The aspect of photography I connect with most is storytelling. From childhood I’ve understood the world around me through stories, and I still understand it better that way.

My engagement with Visual Arts started with Design and Filmmaking, which I studied at NID followed by a short stint at ENSAD. After few years as a practicing filmmaker I discovered Photography. I realized this was the artistic voice I’d been searching for. I went on to study and develop the same at Pathshala

For now, I’m based in Mumbai where I work as a filmmaker and photographer.

My primary areas of interest include nature, mythology, fiction, portraiture, book making, and black & white.

I’m currently working on ongoing projects based in India and Bangladesh.
