I was born and brought up in Kolkata, India.
I am a self taught storytelling photographer who believes photography is a strong medium that can shape up the thoughts, opinions and ideas of a society maintaining the ethical value, as maintained in every work culture. I absolutely love my job and will try to continue with it as long as i survive. For any inquiry you can leave a message down below.
