Black & White Category January 2020 Winner, titled “Caravan”, by Abhishek Nandy
As ASIAN Geographic’s annual Images of Asia (IOA) 2020 Photo/Videography Competition looms closer, submissions to our IOA Monthly competition – the precursor to our annual event – are pouring in. We have received stunning photos across the categories, and are now featuring our monthly winners in an exclusive interview!
Below is our interview with one of this month’s spotlight, Abhishek Nandy, the IOA Monthly January 2020 Winner in the Black & White category, selected from December 2019 entries.
AG: What is the story of your beginning and journey to creating great images?
AG: How would you define your style and concepts you enjoy exploring?
AN: I believe in making images that inspire people to travel; storytelling images with a blend of art.
AG: What is great photography to you, and is there any photographers you would like to work with?
AN: “Great photography is about depth of feeling, not depth of field” (Peter Adams).
I believe that one thing which makes a great photo is its ability to convey emotion. Emotion in a photograph, or any work of art, is what helps a viewer to connect with and pulls the viewer into the scene.
AG: What is your preferred imaging gear to work with and why?
AG: What is your next Asia destination to explore and why?
AG: Can you share more about your current and upcoming projects?
Congratulations once again to Abhishek Nandy for being the Images of Asia (IOA) Monthly January Winner in the Black & White Category! You can check out Abhishek’s Instagram page here.
