Andul, Howrah, West Bengal, India
Photography is a kind of meditation for me. Born and brought up in Andul, a small town under Howrah District in West Bengal, India, I love to capture everything around me, yet I have very special interest in documentary photography. Through this medium of art, I express myself and remain good. During my photographic journey, not only good photographs, also good films, paintings and many great art works influenced me.
I completed different projects under State Government of West Bengal along with many self-projects like Old Age Happiness, Flood affected areas, Child Labor, Health care issue, Animal rights and many more.
Being a scholarship awardee in Foundry Photojournalism Workshop 2018 and TAPSA 2018, I gained advance knowledge in narrative photography. The workshop "Experimenter Learning Program: Module III: New Directions on Documentary photography by SohrabHura has enriched my knowledge further.
I have won diverse photography challenges in National and International level including UNESCO (Climate change), Honorable Mention in Marilyn Stafford FotoReportage Award, West Bengal State Award Champion at Kalanand organized by PrafullaDahanukar Art Foundation and being top 10 finalists of International Women Photographer Award 2017. Many of my photos and photograph stories were published in various media.
