Dipayan Bose is a self-taught freelance photographer. He has started photography during his college days, and unknowingly it became a very important part of his life once he finishes his graduation studies. He started his career in an IT company but didn't survive in those concrete walls for long. In 2017, he left his job and started freelance photography in various segments like commercials, events, weddings, documentaries, photojournalism, etc., and finally found his core interest in documentary & photojournalism. He has experience in teaching photography at ICAT design & Media college, Chennai & AAFT University, Raipur for more than three years. But somehow the core productivity was missing, hence he started freelance photojournalism in news wire agencies and doing his personal projects, photo stories & workshops, etc. Currently, he is contributing political, environmental, business, breaking news, etc to SOPA images & NUR Photo agency.
According to him, Documenting human life, social issues, and environmental stories through photojournalism is not only a documentation process but also its proof of a time or incident. So it’s a responsibility to keep the truth through the lens for future references. As a photographer, he always believed in creativity rather than gears. According to the man himself, " Every place, every human being is made of a thousand stories, it's my job as a photographer to document them as much as I can and let the world know about their existence."
Freelance Photo contributor at SOPA images, Zuma Press & NurPhoto Agency.
