Harsh Realities

"Harsh Realities"
An elderly couple break bricks by hand for road construction in India.

Biography: I am a lawyer by training, but photography has been a part of my life since I was a child and provides the ideal artistic anthesis to an otherwise academic profession. Having focused early on primarily on wildlife and landscapes, I've migrated toward human subjects, with street photography, portraiture and reportage making up the majority of my work at present. Living in a country as vibrant as India provides a wealth of opportunity in these areas and I hope to articulate the varied flavours of this expansive nation through my photographs.
