Issue 46


Avinash Jai Singh A regular small town boy who has an amazing sense of visual art and capturing moods from his camera. A photographer and illustrator by profession, his work showcases a beautiful harmony of portraits, colours and lighting, thereby depicting beautiful stories and emotions.

Many a times, the influences and the exposure one receives as a child, gives one a certain direction in life. Something similar happened with Avinash, a photographer and an illustrator from North India who carved his own path to success. He grew up in Panipat, the hub of textile industry, and his observations of the colours around him generated a love for visual arts and gave him a perspective to understand lighting, forms, shapes and portraits. Avinash was always fascinated by lifestyle magazines and his world changed when he started his actual learning process in a college in Delhi. Finally, he had his aha moment when he was on a trip to Kashmir doing a series on the lives of people, where he realised that photography was what he wanted to do all his life
