I am a freelance photojournalist/multimedia journalist and documentary photographer from Kolkata, India. The Diversify Photo Community currently represents me as a people of color (He/Him) from the global south. I am a VII photo masterclass alumnus.
My objective in photography is to push the boundaries of storytelling in the digital age, while simultaneously developing socially relevant personal projects. My interests include, but are not limited to, urban ecology, hyper-consumerism, climate change in the context of neoliberalism, evolving identity and democracy, mental health, data breaches in the age of surveillance capitalism, and other social contexts. My degree in Computer Science & Engineering, my understanding of digital space, and numerous photography workshops that I have attended collectively inform my visual practice. I always love to connect photography with interdisciplinary media, as the current trend of photography is to create more impact by getting new technological offerings mixed with it.
I have worked with BBC News, Social and Political Research Foundation India, and other media outlets. The Cortona On The Move collected my multimedia work for a permanent archive on the covid pandemic.
