About

I’m SUBHAMOY BHATTACHARJEE. I’m from India’s North-East – an amazing land of many contradictions. It’s a magnificently beautiful region, but plagued with myriad conflicts; replete with abundant natural and diverse cultural resources, but weighed down by poverty and backwardness. The mighty Brahmaputra – ’ Tsangpo ’ in neighbouring Tibet – and other rivers add to its splendour and provide sustenance to millions for most of the year, but impoverish the same people during monsoon every year.
I tell the tale of this incredible land, with my pictures.
Writing and photography have been my passions since childhood. Later, I combined the both while working for some dailies and periodicals in the 1990s. I always illustrated my pieces with pictures shot by me. I had a Yashika, then popular among the amateurs.
My keenness to learn photography prompted me to join a studio, where I worked as a part-timer even when I was associated as a journalist with a daily in Guwahati – the main city of the region. I also did a short course on photography in Jadavpur University, Kolkata.
Sometime in late-1990s, I realized that pictures were more powerful than words. And since then I have been pursuing a career in photojournalism.
The North-East India comprises seven States – Assam, Manipur, Aruanchal Pradesh, Mizoram, Meghalaya and Tripura. I am based in Guwahati, the capital city of Assam, but keep on traveling across the region and sometimes even neighbouring West Bengal too.
Apart from dailies and periodicals in North-East India, my photographs were published in newspapers like The Indian Express and The Telegraph, along with magazines like OUTLOOK and TEHELKA, as well as the BBC website news.bbc.co.uk.

One of my photographs has been accepted for a National Geographic publication, called, "Holidays around the World " in 2006.

Apart from documentary and editorial photography, I do assignments for Books, Features and Advertising Agencies.

Projects:

I am currently working on a photo-essay on the Roving Theaters of Assam, in addition to another on impact of insurgencies and ethnic conflicts on civil society of Assam.
