I am an Indian photographer based in Kolkata. I started photography since 2014 when my brother handed me his Sony Alpha 200 camera. From then on, this passion became an integral part of my life. After realising that photography is what I want to pursue, I planned my future steps accordingly.
I started training under Joydeep Mukherjee who taught me how to work in longitudinal projects. Working with him, I became keen on projects of different human interest issues. Presently I am working on a project of exploring the tribes of the Indian subcontinent.
My works have been exhibited in Kolkata and Bangladesh.I won two Honorable Mention awards in Black & White Spider Awards in 2019 in the categories of Photo-journalism and People.I also won the Third Place in a National photo Contest organised by the UP Government in India.In 2016, guided and supported by my mentor Joydeep Mukherjee I initiated an e-magazine called FOTOJAJS (www.fotojajs.com) which has been my dream. Under the banner of FOTOJAJS, I also work as a commissioned photographer for various clients.I have been taught by my mentor to “click for a cause” and that has motivated me to run a project titled as Click For A Cause which documents various social issues and try to send message through the pictures. A group of photographers from my city has been part of this project and together we documented Pollution related pictures which got published by the West Bengal Pollution Control Board, a government body.
I am surrounded both by natural beauty and interesting people. I use my camera to document the world and then print images with a focus on the magic I find in daily life. My pictures tell my stories.
