Pro Profile - Rohan Shrestha

With the legacy of his father and renowned photographer Rakesh Shrestha around him, it was unnerving to take up photography as a career. But he took that us as a challenge, and has today become a permanent fixture in the photography industry, not to mention, at a very young age. With several magazine covers and fashion editorials for renowned publications under his belt, the number of renowned Bollywood celebrities and personalities he has shot is endless, and he has developed campaigns of several leading brands as well. However, his photography is not just limited to that, and he also indulges in fine-art, travel and underwater photography. This month we speak to Rohan Shrestha, and find out how this young maverick turned it out!

The Most Powerful Photos of 2017

As 2017 came to a draw, we took a look back at the year that was. The year saw numerous events, which were heartbreaking, awe-inspiring, shocking and some that left us utterly speechless. Some of these moments were captured on camera. These powerful images became the face of these events. They were seen by the world, and even shared on social media. They moved people, raised awareness, and were a reminder of how photography still remains as one of the more powerful visual mediums.

The Konyaks: The Last of the Tattooed Headhunters

The Konyaks were Naga people who were recognised for their distinguising body and face tattoos and inhabited the the Mon District-- also known as ‘The Land of The Anghs’ in Nagaland. The Anghs/Wangs are their traditional chiefs whom they hold in high esteem. The book The Last of the Tattooed Headhunters – The Konyaks delves deep into the tribe’s way of living and captures every essence of these fierce headhunters’ lifestyle as the last of the original headhunters grow old and the long-standing tradition of collecting enemy’s heads as trophies come to an end. The Konyak people’s heritage is captured by Phejin Konyak, a tribal woman, who is the great granddaughter of a tattooed headhunter and warrior, Ahon Konyak.
