A Candid and Documentary Photographer with his own style, Nilanjan Ray was born in Kolkata, India in 1959. Nilanjan has a handful of exposed stock on “HUMAN INTEREST” and keeps stock of other people’s money in a Bank since it is his profession. Although he did attend some workshop and classes at the different Institute, Nilanjan is to be considered substantially a self-taught photographer. He is a life member of an oldest Photographic club in Kolkata, Photographic Association of Bengal, Kolkata.
Right from childhood, he has always been fascinated by the life on the streets and the complicated and fascinating motion it involves, and this was the spark that inspired his first long-term personal projects, photographing in Varanasi- An Eternal City and then Faith – A quaint Emotions.
Over the years he has produced long and detailed photographic projects in various subjects in West Bengal as well as India.
