I am an independent photographer based in India. I have spent a good amount of time coding digital image processing algorithms before choosing photography as my primary medium to narrate stories.
I did my bachelors in technology with specialization in Computer Science. Later, I explored the medium of photography through different masterclasses. I am a Foundry Photojournalism Workshop alumnus and received VII Foundation scholarship to attend VII masterclasses 2018-19.
Photography is a kind of meditation for me and I focus on exploring social & environmental stories of our time.
My works have been published with media outlets like BBC, Travel+Leisure, Discover India, StoriesAsia, Social & Political Research Foundation Journal.

I am  a member of the Diversify Photo community.
