My name is Debarghya Mukherjee, I am a creative and art photographer from India, my photographic journey started with a vision of expressing myself. Visual art and its different forms were always a very interesting subject to me, I used to be a self-taught painter, but couldn’t continue, and then I jumped into photography after many years. And some way around it changes my life. It gave me freedom to express myself in many ways. I always feel that we all have something deep inside, that we either want to paint or want to write. And photography gave me that freedom. I started using this as a medium. As I am from a computer science background, digital processing gave me an extra advantage. I started following works of many famous visual artists, and developed my own style of art. But sometimes I feel an artist cannot be settled, maybe it’s my style right now, maybe I can change myself completely in a couple of years, it all depends on your mind.
I used to teach in school and colleges, and then started my own business and became so busy with life that made me depressed, and one day my wife asked me to spend some time with something that interested me, something out of my regular routine. Then I started photography and everything changed. I had that interest inside of me, to express my visual representation of thoughts, and I jumped into it.
Photography is a visual art form to me. Photography made lots of changes in my life; I started thinking about things in a different manner. I started studying color, lights, human emotions, and most importantly “How to tell a story”. As a creative photographer, storytelling is most important to me.
