Serendipity

Street photography is about that transitory lie that lies behind the truth, it’s a “pause” button in a live movie, the minute we press the “play” button, every character starts performing again.

Photography is a festival that I celebrate everywhere, every day.
For me, Serendipitous photos make familiar into something poetic and at times mythical, it consists of various factors such as proximity, similarity, intuition, direction, and closure.

I always asked myself “Why do I want to make this picture, It’s important to ask "WHY" ? rather than "HOW"?
“Why?” is the reason behind why I started his project & it started reflecting, it’s all about expressing myself and discovering who I am, being intuitive, making photographs which are spontaneous, transitory, and instinctual, something that you make in a fraction of a second, something you blink and you miss, something which is “YOU”

The images have been shot at different locations in India spread over 25 years, just a disclaimer - 'no animals were hurt or distressed during the shoot'
