Beyond Street A photography project by Swarat Ghosh

“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

Swarat’s work has been published in several national and international magazines including National Geographic Traveler and International Street Photographer. His work is exhibited in London, Paris, Glasgow, Thailand, Mumbai & Hyderabad.
