Ladders have always fascinated me, as a child it was the only way I could reach the first branch of the Cryptomeria tree from where I could then climb higher than any one. It was the ladder that let me reach the roof of the cottage we lived in to a place otherwise inaccessible. There has always been something romantic about the way I have looked at the ladder. Its been more than a bunch of rickety steps on a wooden frame, its more of symbol to me. That little push that we all need to get the ball rolling, from where we are all can then take it on and keep it rolling, faster and faster!
The youngest of 3 photographers to have received the National Academy Award for Visual Art, I live and work out of New Delhi and Lucknow, in India. Commercially my work revolves around Architecture and Industrial work, my personal work is a palette of varied subjects and always changing. Teaching and mentoring young photographers in the hope that it will help them improve their work is something high on my priority list. Born and raised in a tiny village in Bhutan I graduated from St. Stephens college, Delhi where I picked up Photography. After traveling the world for about 5 years ( 5 continents and 30 odd countries) I returned to India in 2007.
