I am a wanderer and love to document stories of our time and narrate them visually. This is why people and streets are my favorite subjects as a photographer. I strive to narrate the tales of the people with latent faces, who exist around us and always work to make a difference in our world but most often go unnoticed – be a labour or farmer, prostitute or pilgrim, cobbler or a butcher. I believe that reality is more important rather than making my pictures aesthetically perfect.
It was during my college days when a street vendor printing images on ordinary paper with the help a blue solution made me curious. After few months, I found myself standing beside the developing tray in the darkroom at a friend's place whose father was a photographer. Looking at gradually developing latent images was a mysterious and fascinating phenomenon, as the evolution of life, that charmed me forever. That was my first encounter with the magic of photography Camera became a medium of expression of my feelings and when in hand it always makes me feel stronger.
