Growing up I was mesmerised by the world around me as a child dreaming up different adventures when combing through travel magazines – fascinated by 35mm film – I picked up my first camera at the age of 12. In early 2000, I gained a greater understanding of light and dark when studying traditional Black & White darkroom imaging and printing. While macro came naturally interested me, I wanted to master landscape photography – I revel in finding beauty in simplicity.
I have been fortunate to feel the expanse, the ruggedness, the serenity, the sheer power of many different lands, waters and skies across our beautiful world. Being in nature feeds my soul – in a world that has become complex and complicated, I see great beauty in simplicity and revel in the freedom to explore, freedom to create and freedom to transcend.
Stillness and motion fascinates me. By challenging traditional boundaries, I have discovered a passion for a kaleidoscope of colour, textures, shapes and light to captivate the mind through my interpretation of impressionism.
London-born to Indian parents, I have spent more than 30 years in corporate life leading communications globally building narratives and storytelling. In my mind, there is a correlation between communications and photography – different perspectives, presents different solutions and while one communicates through words, the other is through impactful images but storytelling is at the heart of each
‘To me land, water and skies have their own personalities and capturing this raw energy from a visual standpoint adds a certain amount of permanence to what would otherwise simply be a brief and transient experience.
My interpretation of simplicity concentrates on the power of perspective and natural light taken at a particular moment in time making the ordinary, visually extraordinary. Above all, photography represents an intrinsic marriage between creativity and technical prowess.’
My work has been featured in a variety of publications and exhibitions.
