About Dipanjan Chakraborty

After being a street and documentary professional photographer my course of life has completely altered. I have had a craze for photography given that my childhood, whenever I could get a mobile or electronic camera from anyone I would always attempt to capture my surrounding people and their everyday life.

I am Dipanjan Chakrborty. I am Kolkata based street and documentary professional photographer. I have actually been documenting Kolkata for the last couple of years. As a photographer, my perspective remains to check out street photography as a key to reach the typical individuals and their lives. I enjoy to tell stories through my lens.

When I make a plan to go out for a shoot at first I used to make research on that specific subject or project on which I am going to do my work, then I utilized to make a plan on that specific location and time when my shoot takes place, since time is more crucial in street photography. In some cases when I go out with my devices I record numerous honest moments on the street I am using a Sony A6000 mirrorless cam right now.
