Bio

Prabhat is a thoughtful cameraman. What I mean is that he reflects on the human scene with much compassion. His shots on the Gujjars, the Tharu’s of Nepal, as well as Kumbh, speak for his sharp eye. His photography does not merely dole out information. No, it is that, but more. The point of it all is not to stimulate our idle curiosity, but to humanize the desensitized city slickers. The photos –taken with artistic expertise, help us relate emotionally with the ignored and disowned of the earth. Here, therefore, is a kindly eye. Only eyes such as that really see. Others are, humanly speaking, blind.

 (Noted Art Critic Keshav Malik observed in his commentary A Mark on the Scene for the catalogue of Mute Dialogues.)

He is a photographer and a journalist with the spirit of an activist. His passion is to narrate stories of the people with latent faces, who exist and always work to make a difference in this world but are never noticed – be a labour, farmer, prostitute or pilgrim. He organizes workshops to train photojournalists and aspiring photographers & teach mass communication.
