About me

I am a photographer from Raipur, Chhattisgarh (India). I am currently working as a Curator with Conflictorium in Raipur for their new museum project. I am also a part-time freelancer where I work as a photographer, filmmaker and video editor. I am a recent graduate from National Institute of Design as a Masters in Photography Design.  My personal projects explore different communities, alternate cultures and testifies to an abiding interest in using documentary photography and filmmaking to probe questions of pressing contemporary social relevance.  On a personal level, I try to engage with people's sense of nostalgia, memory and experiences to understand the social and cultural fabric better.  I am also interested in Archiving projects and Bookmaking where I like to experiment with visual approaches.
