Bio 

My aim with photography is two-fold. I want to push the boundaries of photography, question what it means to be a photographer in the digital age while simultaneously playing the role of observer and commentator on critical contemporary social issues.


I was on my way to a doctorate in the theoretical sciences before I decided to change course and explore the burgeoning field of contemporary photography. I have been promenading across the globe for the past few years and am presently awaiting the next adventure the four winds will carry me to.

Apart from working on my own photography related projects, I enjoy playing curator too and have been associated with the Kochi Biennale and OBSCURA Festival of Photography in this role.
