Pro-profile - Bikramjit Bose

With a degree in English literature, he stumbled upon photography while trying out his grandfather’s Minolta Rangefinder to do something creative in order to enter design school. The hobby stuck on and by the time he graduated, photography had become a passion. After assisting a couple of professional photographers, he dared to freelance. He started doing commissioned projects – shooting portrait stories, photo essays and fashion editorials – contributing to magazines like Elle, Vogue, Harper’s Bazaar, Marie Claire, Grazia, Rolling Stone and GQ India. Whether minimal studio portraits or narrative-driven fashion editorials, his knack of shooting portraits is noteworthy. He was recently awarded ‘Photographer of the Year’ by Vogue India. This month, we enter the world of Delhi-based photographer Bikramjit Bose to find out more about his work and the ideas behind them.

Ricoh WG-M1 Review

Joining the battle of the sports action cameras, Pentax this year released its Ricoh WG-M1. A small, yet tough-looking camera, the WG-M1 features full HD video (1280 x 960 pixels), Wi-Fi compatibility, and a tiny screen to review the output. The camera is shockproof, waterproof, freeze proof and dustproof, and can be submerged 33feet/10metres in water. While it sounds great on paper, does the camera perform just as good too? Read on to find out more.

Dubai - An oasis in the desert

Dubai, a name that is synonymous with tall structures and even taller ambitions, is the most populated emirates of the seven emirates that make up the country. Dubai has turned a barren desert land into the fastest growing metropolis on the planet, and it is by no means an easy feat to achieve. Forty years ago Dubai was just a desert land where no man would even think of settling down and now Lamborghinis and Ferraris ply on the roads where more than 2000000 stay and work. Dubai has emerged as a global city and a business hub for most multinational companies in the Middle East.

Top five conflict photographers

Photojournalism is one of the toughest genres of photography and not many dare to take it up as a profession. The brave few, who do, face immense and tiring hours looking for stories, researching, making travel plans and finally shooting them. It is a path filled with thorns and the ones who follow that path are the bravest of the photographers. From visiting conflict zones to earthquake-hit areas they see it all. Some can keep it professional but some break down after a few years. Their photos of the coverage are what help us see the conflict from inside. They risk their lives daily just as the soldiers in the war do and are often unappreciated. They never ask for attention and almost never come to limelight, being the silent observer that they are. In this article, we talk about the five best conflict and war photographers around the world.
