Swarat Ghosh Beyond Street

“In the street I try to catch emotions more than anything. “Content” is King, and as long as I am getting strong subjects with varied emotions which people can easily relate to, I think as a photographer, I have done justice to myself. I just enjoy the whole experience of making pictures until now.

For me, street photography is all about timing and the capacity to observe. I pat myself on the back for the sheer dedication with which I push myself when making images on the streets. Many times I feel to skip on weekends (due to my software job), but somehow drag myself just for the sheer joy of clicking that magic picture at a time.” – Swarat Ghosh
