Know Me

amit kagra

Travel photographer with a decade of life as a practicing monk, traveling to villages for my job, a full time at home father. This has been a roller coaster of a ride with long bouts of depression but also great joy.

As a travel photographer, I tend to focus on local traditions and culture and document them. I enjoy conversations with elderly folks in the countryside.


“What I do with my time and what I do for money are completely different things”

Avid traveler, cross- culture communication explorer. Having traveled across the length and breadth of my country, understanding consumer psychology comes naturally to me.

Experiencing different cultures and seeing people react differently to a similar situation made me question many of the things around us.  Fortunate to be part of India’s largest rural retail chain and a rural consultancy firm for a short span of time. My work took me to the vast countryside and I was fascinated by the rustic nature of the hinterland.

I have been a visual person since my school days. It is fitting to say that when I gifted myself a DSLR I was completing a long drawn puzzle. I love creating and conveying a story through visual medium even if the image may not be technically sound.

“Here to seek, to experience and to share”, I am always looking for a human interaction. Please feel free to get in touch.


Looking forward to hearing from you
