About Me

“To me, a camera is an instrument of learning. When you look through it, you start achieving a kind of concentration. In these concentrated moments, you penetrate and discover the unseen – the unknown. As the French photographer Henri Cartier-Bresson said, when you close one eye to look through the viewfinder, one eye looks at the world and the other looks inside you! As I learn….all that you are in these moments get reflected in your work.” –Raghu Rai. On the same line of thought, after completing successfully my Master studies in Arts in 2011, I desired to turn my career objectives in the direction of photography and photojournalism. In particular, I have been enthusiastic about photography. To achieve this feat I have recently completed a basic eight months photography course in 2016. Moreover, my enthusiasm in this creativity encouraged me to participate in several inter- and intra-states national and international photography contests organized in Russia and the Czech Republic. I have been awarded several awards in the genres of street, humanist, monochrome, and portrait photography. My photos have been selected in several photography contests as a mentor´s choice and some of my selected photos appeared in magazines such as National Geographic, newspapers such as AnandabazarPatrika, and Dainik Bhaskar News Paper, and online forums such as Fotojajs.com. These achievements and of course my passion helped me to choose photography as my future career. My future perspective would be to explore the humanist and street photography as a tool to reach the common people and to capture the social changes happening around them. This will be in my opinion is one of the ways to look vividly into our social customs and it´s relation to humanity. It is my strong belief that the humanist and street photography would be able to sketch our socio-humanism as good as Novels, Songs, or Drawings do. Therefore, as my future goals, I would like to apply the concept of humanist and street photography to reveal our uneven-social-customs, and to compare my findings with those of the contemporary Novels, Songs, and Writings.
