Welcome

Joydeep Mukherjee…. Know the name and the story!!


I am a photographer who believes that an artist's work must be good consistently to be considered as an art. One must have ‘eyes like a shutter and mind like a lens’!!.... I always ‘work for a cause, not applause…I live life to express, not impress’!!      


From my early days, I have been interested in various kinds of sports, trekking and travelling but it was only in 2003 that I stepped into the world of photography. During a trek to the Annapurna Base Camp – Nepal I got interested in photography. From this time forth this passion became an integral part of my life.


According to me a photographer must be technically competent to use the various techniques to change a photograph from a mere snap to a “snapshot of someone’s life”. Photographs can be used to narrate a story, and thus should not cater to the aesthetic aspect only. Despite my hectic working hours at a reputed Kolkata-based MNC, the passion for photography remains undiminished.


Come, visualize and live with me the jazz and indignation for photography…Let our words be few…exposures many!!

Frames Of Water Colour...

Water, thy name is life. Truly said, in all the possible senses - real or surreal, it feels to me when I see water, creating different frames of human life. I live in the area of the city which, in almost every alternate year, during the rainy season, gets flooded.


A heavy down pour and the locality is waterlogged disrupting daily life. While I think how my daughter will go to school, the little girl living in the mud house in the neighbourhood, goes out chest deep to fetch drinking water. The old man living on the street tries to save his family, the two stray dogs that live with him, by pulling them on the cement slab he sleeps on.


At the same time, to the other end of the alley, I saw a man in that chest deep water rushing to help another man on a wheelchair who was about to fall. When this man is saved from falling into the water, I saw a boy jumping into the flood water from upon a van, as if the street was his swimming pool. All these and many more such contrasting compositions paint a whole new picture of my city coloured by water.


Life represents itself in different moods, range of expression dipped in pool of emotion and reiterates in my ears, live life to express, not to impress.
