I am a photographer living between Paris and Mumbai. My work is a search for stories, incidents, people and things through which I want to find the meaning of  ’slice of life’.
I  make photographs using analog methods. The process and thought that goes into making a photograph is intense. I enjoy the smell of chemistry as it pours life into the silver halide crystals. The anticipation factor that film brings in, excites me. The magic hits the peak, when you see your photograph appear on a floating sheet of fibre paper, in the red tray of developer. Time flies by when I am in the darkroom. I cherish the journey as much as the destination.
