Sayan Hazra is an independent documentary storyteller based in India. So far Sayan has been focusing on personal projects because this is the only way he can work on subjects he deeply cares about. He believes in producing work that pushes boundaries and helps him grow as an artist and connects to an audience through a shared passion. He also loves to explore new techniques for documentary storytelling that are different from traditional narrative photojournalism.
