I am an enthusiastic photographer based on Auckland’s North Shore.
I have held many exhibitions and my work has featured at the Auckland Festival of Photography, North Shore Library, The Guardian, The English Observer, The One Community Chronicle and the New Zealand Herald.
This year, 2022, as a member of the Auckland Photographic Society, I received the People's Choice Award for best image at the Logan Campbell exhibition and received a Honaorable mention at the International Michael Day competition.
I have also been chosen Best of Year in the Advanced group at the Auckland Photographic Society.
As a member of the North Shore Photographic Society, I won joint first prize in an Australasian wide Photographic Society competition.
Initially being influenced by photographers such as Henri Cartier-Bresson and Robert Doisneau I became and still am a passionate Street Photographer, aiming to catch strangers engaged in their daily activities.
I love the documentary concept of catching people in public places, during a moment of truth, spontaneously, revealing their character, personality, spirituality and inner self.
I also enjoy the art of Impressionist photography using strategies of asymmetry, cropping and blurring of motion.
Through experimenting with impressionism I became absorbed with the effect, not just of light, but also of reflections and it’s another artistic activity I very much enjoy and one I am happy to share.
Project: A Celebration of Indian Life - Surfacing the Unseen
I started this project to evaluate and document the integration of Indian families in the Auckland community and the similarity of Indian life here against that of India.
I exhibited my experience and images during the Auckland Festival of Photography from 15 July until 03 August, 2020 at the Depot Artspace in Devonport
