Sample Photography artist statement
I believe every photograph must tell a story an every photographer must have a third eye. I use photography as a means to tell stories, stories of people that I observe in the world around me. With the help of the photographs clicked by me I intend to give the world a taste of reality. In order to be more observant, I travel around the world like a nomad in the strangest of places. I have no qualms in interacting with people from all sections of society.
In order to be a photographer who wants to tell stories with the help of his photographs, one should have no inhibitions. That’s why I am always inhibition free. I believe in opening an unexplored world with the pin hole of my camera.
While shooting any photograph, I believe in making it dramatic by using the right amount of light and darkness. I have learnt all these tricks from Mr. Carter Branson whom I used to assist. He has to taught be very observant and aware of the surroundings in which I click pictures.
