Bikramjit Bose Mumbai photographers

On graduating from The Srishti School of Art, Design and Technology in Bangalore in 2007, Bikramjit Bose moved to Mumbai in 2008 to pursue photography. After a brief apprenticeship, he started doing commissioned projects - shooting portrait stories, photo essays and fashion editorials - contributing to magazines like Elle, Vogue, Harper's Bazaar, Marie Claire, Grazia and GQ India.

With a particular love for black and white imagery and a narrative approach to a lot of his work, Bikramjit's approach to photography is essentially that of a portrait photographer. Whether they are stark, minimal studio portraits or narrative-driven fashion editorials, it is always the human element that is the focal point of his work.

While his pared-down aesthetic and sensibilities are reflected in his portraits, he also draws a lot of inspiration from cinema and the works of cinematographers, which are, in turn, reflected in his fashion stories.

In 2011, he was awarded Silver in the 'PX3 Prix de la Photographie Paris' Awards for his portrait series 'And they all sat down', which is a work-in-progress.
