Evolution of me…

Why do I photograph? I have asked myself this question many a times. May be it’s the need to hold on to my memories in some shape or form. And someday when my memory fails me, I can look at my images and reminisce. To quote Henri Cartier-Bresson, “Photographers deal in things which are continually vanishing and when they have vanished there is no contrivance on earth which can make them come back again.”

I started paying serious attention to what I was photographing sometime in 2009. It took me a year to figure out what I wanted to photograph or rather how I wanted to photograph. I was told that you don’t take photos, you make them. I tend to agree with that.

My influences are many and I probably need a few pages to list the names of all photographers past and present whom I follow and am deeply influenced by. I suppose my father was my primary inspiration. I still remember an image that my father made that got me curious about photography. I will put it up on this blog soon as I can get a digital copy (the original must be at least 20yrs old).

But suffice to say, street and documentary photography including reportage holds a special place in my heart. I guess I am more comfortable making black and white images but I am learning to use colour too and often.

I welcome any feedback or comments about the images you view on this site. Thanks for stopping by.

    Sweet blog! I found it while searching on Yahoo News. Do you have any suggestions on how to get listed in Yahoo News? I’ve been trying for a while but I never seem to get there! Cheers.

      Thanks Clara. Unfortunately, I can’t help you there. I haven’t tried listing on Yahoo News myself so I am not sure how I got there in the first place :).
