I was born in Baruipur near Kolkata. Socio-economic crisis, environmental issues interested me since I was in school. However, after completing graduation I started working in film production houses of Mumbai, holding the post of production professional, for 5 years. Later I left my job to focus on creating photo stories on socio-economic crisis, human rights and environmental issues prevailing in the Indian subcontinent and bring them in front of the global audience. Currently, working as a long term in-depth visual storyteller I have to make frequent visits to Bangladesh, Nepal and several parts of India for my projects. Further, I am planning to represent the gruesome realities of human life in the South Asian Countries with utmost honesty, maintaining the dignity of the human race.
Currently I am in Kolkata, India and available for assignments worldwide.
