I share a few throwback moments here.

In the year 1982. I got a 1st professional assignment over the

phone where I was a trainee under the guidance of ace

photographer Late Jyotish Chakrabarty, with a huge baritone

voice, none other than Manik Jhethu (Uncle), Shri Satyajit Ray.

The brief was to shoot a family portrait with period lighting

in the studio set up.

The images were supposed to be used on the sets of Ghare-Baire

(Home and the World). It was a family portrait of Bimala & Nikhilesh

which was kept on the table in duo’s bedroom.

Conceptualization, Art Direction, Styling and also the artwork

was done by The Maestro himself.

Location: Indrapuri Studio, Tollygunge, Calcutta.

I am extremely lucky and honoured to work with the stalwart as

a young photographer, who just started his first professional clicks.

I was incorporated as a member of Team Ray.
