Hi! This is Sandipan Kar (AFIAP; AFIP; Hon.CPE; Hon.PESGSPC; GPA.PESGSPC ; Hon. FFPS) an Indian Photographer. From a very tender teenage capturing people and their various struggles of life through my very first "AGFA Click-III” has been my passion. These early exposure to various styles and forms of photography, thus starting my peregrination of becoming who I am.
As a Photo Artist I started Salon Photography from the year 2018. Photography to me has always been a medium to depict hidden expression. Every photo is an adventure, thus, through Nature Photography I have captured the joy of Birds while catching their food, the care of mother towards their wildlings, list may go on. Through Travel Photography I tried my best to illustrate how each and every place, culture or race speaks one thing "To live the life to the fullest despite the hardship that they face” .My works in Portrait Photography have tried to break the stereotypes, allowing people to express themselves as what they really are in various forms.
I am also the co-founder of Photography Club PLAAPA (Photography Lovers an Abode of Photo Addicts) based in my city Kolkata. Although it started off as a social media Photography group in 2015, but since 2018 PLAAPA has been participating in various International & National Salon. Up till now PLAAPA has been awarded 18 times "Best Club Award" by various National and International Salons. In the Inter Club Contest organised by Federation of Indian Photography PLAAPA stood 8th all over my country India in 2018.
Up till now I have won numerous awards and acceptances through my photography in various International as well National Salons some of which:
1) Best Entrant Award in National and International Salon (4 times)
2) Several Gold & Silver Medals from International /National Salon etc.
As of now, I have started Judging as a Juror in various International & National Salons.
My heartfelt thanks to Campina Photographic Exhibition Society (Romania) for giving me such prestigious honour.
