I started with photography around three years back. Interest turned to hobby and hobby to passion. “Concept” is a powerful word. As I see it, if we don’t have the ability to imagine, then we have nothing. I started off taking interest in portraits but as I kept going deeper into the philosophy that is photography I started growing more and more conceptual. While I do appreciate other kinds of photography, and I do sometimes shoot a landscape or just a normal shot with my cellphone camera, my main interest lies in conceptual art. To me it seems the term photographer is taken and applied very lightly in modern times but it holds a very prestigous and highly artistic meaning and I dare not call myself a “photographer”. Not today and probably never.
