About me

I am a photographer from Raipur, Chhattisgarh (India). I am currently working as a Curator and Project Anchor with Conflictorium in Raipur for their new museum project. I also freelance part-time as a photographer, filmmaker and video editor. I am a recent graduate from National Institute of Design with a Masters in Photography Design.  My projects explore different communities, alternate cultures while using documentary photography and filmmaking to probe questions of pressing contemporary social relevance.  When it comes to my process, 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.
