Avneesh Kumar

For me, there is a live pulsation or an unsaid emotion behind
every seemingly dormant element, an untold story; and
character of every color, shade, minuscule bump or
depression, waiting to be brought alive. I wish to play a bard
and sing the tale through pictures. – Avneesh

Born in Lucknow on 16 October, 1983. Educated in Science. I completed Bachelor of Fine Arts` (Applied Arts) with Gold Medal from Banaras Hindu University, Varanasi. It was during my university days, that I learnt the art of suspending life on a piece of paper. Under the tutelage of (late)Mr. P.C. Little, former Director National Academy of Fine Arts New Delhi Regional Centre, I explored photography and dark room techniques.

After completing BFA, I moved to Noida. I worked as a visualizer at Mind Works Global Media, a multinational media organisation and simultaneously assisted few tenured photographers. I got the opportunity to learn about studio lights, fashion, advertising and product shoot under India’s prominent photographer, Mr. Ashish Chawala. I was also fortunate to receive guidance from Mr. Bandeep Singh, photo head of India Today.

Henceforth, I set out on my own journey…… and the journey has only begun!
