"My artistic journey has been unconventional. Born and raised in Kolkata, India, I arrived to attend college in the US without formal training in the arts. After little more than a decade, I abandoned my career in corporate America and started over professionally, this time as a photographer.
A sabbatical year of travel allowed me to explore documentary photography before narrowing my focus. Today I photograph the built environment with a strong sense of “being there".
The camera has taken me around the world. Since establishing my New York studio, in 2009, I have published work in magazines, newspapers and periodicals including The New York Times, TIME, National Geographic, Interior Design, and Architectural Digest. I have also exhibited with The Museum of the City of New York, the International Center of Photography, and The Royal Photographic Society and the Association of Photographers, both in London.
To complement my own creative practice, I founded Cartwheel Initiative - a nonprofit that works with immigrant youth from conflict- and disaster-affected communities, to help them find a voice through photography and multimedia platforms."
