Lot Essay

‘(On taking pictures). It is a way of life. Taking photographs is like heartbeat and breathing. The sound of pressing the shutter is like a heartbeat. I don’t think about productivity at all. I just shoot life itself. It is very natural for me. For a photographer, the moment he shoots is most thrilling. Developing and printing comes later; it is secondary.’
