Meet Nilangana Banerjee

Today we’d like to introduce you to Nilangana Banerjee.

Nilangana, please share your story with us. How did you get to where you are today?

I did not begin my journey with the thought of becoming a photographer, in the first instance. Coming from a society, which considers photography no more than a hobby and pursuing art just an avocation, I always thought I would pursue one of my parents’ professions when I grow up. My mother is a teacher and father is an engineer. They belong to professions that are not even remotely related to art or photography. Although, I thought I would have to choose either one of the two or probably something around it, I never felt the passion to pursue either of their professions.
