About me

Born in 1988, India

I’m a photographer and filmmaker. My primary areas of interest are mythology, cultural narratives, portraiture and bookmaking. 

My engagement with Visual Arts started with Design and Filmmaking, which I studied at NID followed by a short stint at ENSAD. This was followed by Photography which I studied at Pathshala

For now, I’m based between Austin and Chennai.
