Observing and capturing moments that showcase people in their day-to-day life is his passion. He wanders around streets aimlessly in new places, and this has given him some of his best captures of the spirit of India. His photos evoke memories and nostalgia. “Architecturally beautiful buildings, houses, monuments fascinate me. I get my vocation in architectural photography from having developed this love from my numerous travels,” says Bharat.
