“I am sensible to the nature around, the happening around which inspires me to express my association and the response around. That's made me an artist; artist has various mediums to express their sensibility, which becomes their tools to interpret their feelings and ideas. A dancers uses her body, a musician her voice, instrumentalist their instrument, painters his paint and brush, whereas I used camera as my tool to express myself. It's a great tool it encapsulate the reality, on the other hand it evokes certain feelings among the viewers. My every image has certain aesthetic value, which makes it looks like an art piece. Each and everything around me whether it is social, content of beauty or simple it inspires me to shoot. I get stimulated everything around me.”
