Suvajit Mukherjee @suvajit95 from Kolkata, India

I am Suvajit Mukherjee, a 25 years old Photographer from Kolkata, India. I love to shoot people, culture, emotions, and the streets around me. I wish to portray the entire world from a different perspective and want to explore the world differently. According to my, everyone needs to invest more time in observation rather than buying expensive camera gears. 

I am in this field since 2013 and when I was in higher secondary school, I used to borrow my uncle’s mobile in order to shoot photographs around me. Photography inspired me a lot to see the world from a different approach and I always tried to shoot interesting frames of daily life scenes. During this entire learning process, I have spent a lot of time learning compositions and use of perspective to be different from the rest of the photographers around me. In 2017, I brought the first DSLR camera of my life and started to explore the city of joy, Kolkata. Eventually, at that time I took admission to Belgharia Photography Club in order to pursue my photography Basic and diploma course under the guidance of Satyen Banerjee. Sir taught me about composition, lights, patterns, forms, Harmony, the use of shapes, and so on. Canon 7000d, Canon 1500D, 10-18mm, 18-55mm, and 50mm lens consist in my Photography gears list.

Being in TOP 50 was like a tick on the bucket list of my life and I was very happy at that time. Being a finalist, I also felt happy for my co-winners and other participants. I used to have #MOOD, #CHILD #EMOTIONS etc. on my hashtag list at that time. Agora plays an important role to present some immersive talent houses in front of the world and provides a strong platform to enhance their personal and professional life. Besides, I thought viewers voted for my photograph based on my composition skill and candid emotion capturing ability. I took that photograph in Kolkata during the Iskon Rathyatra, while devotees were waiting in a queue in order to have food named ‘Mahaprasad’. The emotion of that girl and her surroundings has influenced my ‘photographer’s instinct’ to take a photograph and this I how I made the “Best Photograph of My Life” (until now). 

Now, I am sharing a small list of my awards and recognitions:-
