B. 1950, Lives and works in New Delhi. India
The prolific 68 year old Indian artist with a career spanning five decades inherited this passion from his hobbyist photographer father, whom he often accompanied on his travels amidst the scenic beauty of Uttranchal's capital Dehra Dun, and surrounding hills. While still studying in school, he was inspired by his neighbour, a famed photo - journalist representing international magazines like BUNTE and others - always on the move covering stories like Beatles visiting Mahrishi Mahesh Yogi ashram for meditation in Rishikesh in North India or the famous festivals and events in the country. Such was the profound impact on me that I chose to take up this profession in 1972. With a passion of only doing travel books - got worldwide acclaim for some of my titles 1001 Images of Taj Mahal A Great Wonder of The World, India Land of Celebrations and many more.
