About

I have two great passions in life, Travel & Photography. Travel broadens & expands my horizon, where experiencing other cultures and communities helps me overcome the isolation one feels living in a bustling city. Seeing other countries and experiencing the beauty and sometimes the ugliness helps me understand that all of our lives are interconnected yet individual at the same time.

It has helped me appreciate my own immediate environment and culture as well as that of the communities I’ve met and the places I’ve seen and I have become a much more rounded & tolerant person as a result. Photography to me is the documentation of memory through a lens. My own personal experiences colour and capture scenes and events and through the subtle art of perception I like to share the beauty and diversity of this world with others. I hope my own contributions will inspire others to do the same.

I view the art of photography as a subtractive process, a distilling of reality into a personal vision. As such I often try capturing an image with the emotions I feel at that exact moment when I tripped the camera’s shutter.

Need Landscape / Town Pictures from Afghanistan

Hey guys,

I’ve written an article for a local magazine here in Bombay (India) along with some of the pictures I took myself in Afghanistan this year. Most of them are portraits – hardly got any time to get out and shoot some landscape shots.

The editor of the magazine said he’d like a few landscape / town shots for the article as well.

Wondering if anyone out there has any I could possibly show him ?

Thanks
