Last year I found myself in the middle of a fierce storm in Death Valley, California. After the initial fury subsided, I positioned myself on Westside Road hoping to catch some of the late evening magic, and was suitably rewarded. The gusts were still very strong and these images had to be made handheld at ISO 400.
I was born and raised in Goa. My photographic interests lie in landscapes, architecture, portraiture, street life, culture, religion, and photojournalism. Places that I find particularly inspiring are Goa, Iceland, and California.
I have shot extensively in my homeland of Goa, recording its surviving heritage and its sui generis ethos. I have documented the destruction of Goa's environment and its rapid slide into the ugliness and urban chaos that characterize today's India.
I am also a musician, with a lifelong association with the musical traditions of India. I live in California and spend extended time in Goa.
