Children of Kashmir

Artist Statement: “I developed interest in photography about  four years ago. I was experimenting with my mother’s DSLR and slowly, photography became my passion. My work, over the years, has seen significant improvement. Even though most of my work consists of street photography, I have never set boundaries for myself and have always been keen on experimenting.

As is known, human emotions are constantly changing and need an outlet. Photography has become a platform for my emotions and a channel through which I express myself. 

My interest in street photography developed because of this very idea, for I love to capture human emotions in their rawest form. Because of that, I have been inspired by photographers like Steve McCurry, Raghu Rai, Ketaki Sheth and Dayanita Singh.

I plan to continue working towards my passion, that has provided me comfort in the darkest times. I also hope to use this very form of art to bring about a change in the world, one picture at a time.”
