I was recently featured in the Bangalore edition of The Hindu newspaper.
Tuesday, October 2nd was Gandhi Jayanthi holiday and most people would have woken up late as it was a holiday. I was up early and rushed to the newsstand to pick up extra copies of The Hindu.
My wedding and portrait work was featured in the Metroplus magazine section of the newspaper in a column called HashTagThis mentioning my Instagram handle @nishantratnakar. It had a spread of 5 of my selected photographs along with a write-up by me. I like the curation of the photographs The Hindu made and also the layout was done well by them. Kudos to the editors and designers!
If you guys have a copy of the print edition, then please do read it (page 5, Metroplus supplement) and let me know what you think of it. The online (not the e-paper version) edition of the column has only one photo accompanying my writing.
However, if you do not have the print version, here is the clipping of the page for you to view and read.
My views shared in the column are reproduced here below:
“I believe photographs are the only tangible form of memories. My photographic work, both personal and professional, is based on this idea and I see pictures in the realm of stories. My fascination with visual storytelling began in my college when I used to trek and would narrate the experiences in travelogues. This eventually led me to abandon my IT job and pursue a lifelong journey in photography. Irrespective of whether I am documenting a wedding, or making a portrait, or chronicling my personal journey as a parent, I always want my photographs to tell a story.”
