My interest in fine art photography was kindled right from school days when I became the proud owner of a brand new Pentax 35mm SLR in the year 1985 and began running after butterflies. Ever since, I have been self-learning, training and honing my skills by studying the styles and techniques of great masters like Ansel Adams, Edward Weston and the Dutch Impressionists. My oeuvre is wide-ranging and exemplifies an eternal search to find balance and harmony in todayâ€™s chaotic world, to try and reach equilibrium when the only constant is change. I draw inspiration from everyday life in India, its rich cultural and ethnic heritage, and also nature; probing and seeking out the extraordinary from the humdrum, finding beauty in the prosaic. My other interests include Classical Music, Poetry, Philosophy, Calligraphy and Spiritualism.
