Sudarshan Mondal loves to make images and its creative process. His selection of subjects and approach depend on the project theme he is up to and in this pursuit he works on mundane things, people on streets, landscapes, nature, travel, also with abstract forms, both in color and black & white. He is now working on a few short and long term non-journalistic projects, mostly personal in nature. Through his photographic endeavor, he tries to establish a sense of time, search social theories, look world in a different perspective, and sometimes depicts his own state of mind.
From his early days of learning basics camera technicalities, color theories and management, processing raw files in Photoshop or Lightroom, to a trip photographing fashion in Miami, tracing fall colors in New Hampshire, driving in the mountain roads of Smoky or Yellowstone, shooting bikini babes in Puerto Rico or streets in New York City, his quest for new experience compelled him to continually evolve his thought process, while reminding him the importance of carrying a camera with humor, compassion and curiosity.
He was born and grew up in a village of West Bengal, then studied electrical engineering, and now works in a multinational software firm. He has been fortunate enough to spend a good extent of time on his personal photo projects, traveling, and collaborating with fellow photographers. He worked and lived in London, Dallas, and New York City and acquainted with many people of different cultures and nationalities. He currently lives in Kolkata with family.
