I am an independent photographer based in India whose documentary works explore rapid changes of our contemporary world focusing on sociological and environmental stories. In my past life, I used to write image processing algorithms after successfully securing 'Bachelor in Technology' in 'Computer Science and Engineering'. But later, Universe introduced photography to me when I was all choked and isolated in life. Photography healed my inner wounds and I embarked on a new Voyage of Life. Photography  is a meditation for me.

I am Foundry Photojournalism Workshop alumnus and received VII Academy scholarship to attend a series of masterclasses hosted by VII photo agency, 2018-19. I attended many other masterclasses to hone my skills in photojournalism and visual arts.

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 Diversify Photo
