About

I am a lawyer working in Delhi and I tend to bring my predilection for reason and jurisprudence into my photography, questioning what the medium stands for, and looking for new ways to use it.

Henri Cartier-Bresson said, “To me, photography is the simultaneous recognition, in a fraction of a second, of the significance of an event as well as of a precise organisation of forms which give that event its proper expression.”

I cannot find a better description of why exactly I’m drawn to this craft. He did say it best!

To see the ‘significance of the event’ is a lifetime activity and I try and keep growing as a person and learning and reading to inform my photography.

I am a huge fan of Dayanita Singh’s approach to photography and her latest exhibit ‘File Room’ really appealed to me in both form and concept. I am currently involved in an experimental project called ‘Rain Check’ with Viraj Rohan Circar . It is an unfurling piece of photo-prose that rejects premeditated narrative and tries to break the convention of image and text pandering to each other in communicating a unified idea.

 I also contribute to the participatory platform of National Geographic.
