I am a Bangalore based photographer and India is my canvas. I have been photographing the life and times of my country and parts of the sub continent for the last 25 years. I have been commissioned by publications as varied as New York Times to Newsweek of Japan – from over 20 countries.

I love to do really long term projects. UNSUNG – about people who have made extraordinary contributions to society against personal odds began in 2004. I published it in the form of a book in 2007. It helped raise over Rs.8.5 million for the causes of the heroes featured in the book. The second book will be published this year. Do visit – http://www.unsung.in

From 2007, I worked on a book project on the city I live – Bangalore. Its a collection of projections from my conscious and subconscious mind. Through my photographs, I explored how the city had changed in the last 25 years. It is also an impassioned plea to support the arts and creativity to drive the true growth of Bangalore. I self publish my books and this book – Bangalore/Bengaluru – In First Person Singular is on the stands since February 2012

I do a lot of corporate photography – documentary, portraits and architecture. I have done assignments for  Accenture, Brigade Group, Clearpoint Learning, Bosch, BP, HP, IBM, Mckinsey, Mindtree, Project Management Institute, Shell, Valspar Global…etc.

I am an assignment photographer with Getty Images and represented by Global Photo Associates, NYC. I have also worked with and work with Polaris Images and Agence Vu.
I am the co-founder and head of photography school at The One School Goa, a newly launched media school in Goa, India.

  1. It’s been over two years now, it is July 18,2015. What is the outcome of Usha Narayane? How in the world can a court case drag on for so long when she wasn’t even involved with the Yadav incident?! The internet says that she was released from custody in 2012. I was wondering how she is doing. I hope she never has any kids if she continues to live in India because it’s so poor there and if she ever has a daughter she herself may even get raped. I wonder if she could get a visa to come to America and once she is here she never goes back. I was also wondering if she needed any finacial help to come to America.
