b.1986 Kanchipuram, India

Photographer. Works and lives in Chennai.

A large part of my school vacations were spent at my uncle’s photo studio which became an inspiration for me to pursue photography. I got a point and shoot film camera from my uncle when I was sixteen which I always carried around to school picnics, cricket grounds, shooting my friends and everything around. 

With photography, I want to record my everyday existence, of all encounters and journeys to create an expression of myself, of my life, of the world around.
