Pursuit
Project info

Ever since my school days when I used to draw pencil sketches I aspired to become a photographer. I would always dream of freezing moments of time in timeless frames to tell tales of mortal periods.

I am now a photographer by profession and take pictures for my livelihood. As a photographer this imagery is all about a never ending pursuit of my personal endeavor and aspirations. This all happened when I shifted my base from Delhi to Noida(Outer Delhi), reason being the sky high rents of Delhi. Two years ago I started taking pictures on streets on daily basis with my smart phone while traveling from home to office and back in order to flush out my frustration caused by the nature of my work and hard travel. It slowly turned out to be a personal narrative, which I found close to my own reality. One that I could relate to my state of self and perspective with the subject.

This whole story could be summed up in a few words:

Desolation and Isolation...

“Just like a sheep deserted in a strange herd in the middle of nowhere, carrying a black burden on my shoulders warped in black, tossed in, getting pulled and pushed in to endless destinations ...
This materialistic noises, rips me apart my soul and heart. I’m lost and perplexed, wandering in this concrete jungle in search of my nest, a nest of solace”....
