Work period: 2002-2014
I began photography as a pictorialist. As I delved into the art and history of the medium, I was influenced by Indian as well as western pictorialists. Realizing this, I tried to find ways of expressing my individual vision by engaging more with my country and its diverse life. Still, the influence of the Pictorial Eye lingered until recently, when I gradually moved away to social & natural documentaries and conceptual work. Here I present a representative body of pictorial black & white images made between 2002 and 2014.
