Born on 2nd November 1973, in New Delhi,India with a first-class degree in fine arts from the prestigious College of Arts, I am a self-taught photographer. Street photography is a passion that I live like a discipline. Although I started shooting as a wildlife photographer for two years, I switched on to street in 2001. It instantly became my passion and my first nature. To me, street photography is a journey and I travel every day, I am learning and unlearning every day, I thrive to improve every day.
Life in general, which is so unexpected, I try to be as honest through my lens as I can.
I try to synthesize between human elements and the environment & my main focus is how to make ordinary moments look extraordinary. I think every one of us should get involved with photography because it gives more than one can ever imagine.
In 2011, APF(artphotofeature.com) magazine was formed, APF is born from an education imperative, it’s an evolving magazine where we recognize fresh talent.
The intent is to provide a platform for emerging photographers, artists, and designers to showcase their works, works that are not necessarily commercial, to create opportunities and open new doors. The subjects explored are broad, in terms of concepts, styles, and techniques. I want to explore the limits and possibilities.
I’m a Leica Ambassador, first-ever Indian in the history of Leica, and conducting workshops as a Leica Mentor in Leica Akademie, with various publications on the Leica blog. Before Leica I was an official Fuji X photographer, member of APF collective & thestreetcollective. Author of the successful book “The Serendipity”.
Currently, I am doing workshops globally, including the Miami street photography festival, the Miami street photography festival, the Italian street photography festival, San Francisco street photography festival, the London street photography festival, Xposure photography festival Sharjah, SIPA and India photo festival. I am also on the leading judging panel of all these festivals.
I have been awarded twice in a row at the Xposure photo festival by His Highness Sheikh Sultan Bin Ahmed Al Qasimi for excellence.
I’ve also been giving lectures and conducting workshops in leading colleges of India for the past 12 years.
My work and stories have been published in various prestigious magazines, newspapers & blogs all over the world including National Geographic, NYT, The Guardian, UK.

For him street photography is one of the purest forms of photography. He says, “It is also one of the most difficult forms of photography. It’s difficult because we usually don’t have much control over the environment, well at least as much as we might like.”
