Kumar Biswas, Photographer
Photography is foremost my medium of interaction with society and the beginning of my responsibility towards it. As journalists, our role is sometimes observational but as soon as we publish, mostly a participation in a dialogue directing the course of action. Sensitivity to what is asking to be told, to what is required to be heard, the stories’ potential to forge human connections, to act as an agent of change is important to my work.
Even though we go about our individual businesses, the truth is that we are like parts of a single entity. I see photography as a means to overcome the distance of Us and Them.
Maybe it won't single-handedly change human being or society. But, there must be something to what's born of sincere conviction. I do believe,any work of art born out of conviction cannot be but good.
