Starting from a hotshot point and shoot camera in late 80s to a Nikon FM10 film camera in late 90s, Sanjoy Sengupta used to get 32 out of 36 exposure wrong to a day of digital cameras like canon Powershot A520 and a decent hybrid version canon SX20IS, which were with him wherever he went to capture some beautiful moments, moments of life which would be cherished forever. Then when he finally could not resist the alluring pricy Nikon DSLR, his actual learning started from that moment.

Jan Møller Hansen is a self-taught and passionate photographer with a main interest in people and their lives. His work is mainly based on social documentary and street photography. He is a diplomat and development practitioner and presently serves as the Danish Deputy Ambassador to Bangladesh. His interest in photography stems from international development assistance, diplomacy and travelling in Asia and Africa during the last 25 years. He has lived and worked four years in Nepal (1991-1995), four years in Vietnam (2000-2004) and by now more than four years in Bangladesh.

Jan Møller Hansen holds a MSc in Civil Engineering (water resources) from the Technical University of Denmark (1989) and a MSc in Human Resources Management from the University of Manchester, UK (1996). He also has diplomas in coaching, executive management and tropical hygiene and medicine from institutions in Denmark.
Photography helps in getting closer to reality and it connects. Good photographs are for him the ones that often stand best alone without words and provoke thoughts and feelings with the viewer. He uses the best cameras and lenses from Canon, even though he only sees technique and equipment as partial elements of the photography process and its outcome. Timing and connection together with light and motion mean everything. Photography is completely unpredictable and very often a big surprise. He loves the interaction with people and the surroundings. When it is practically possible he often brings the equipment on travels in various parts of the world.

Most of his recent work has been done in Bangladesh, where he presently lives and work. During the summer 2011 he visited North-Western Greenland in the Disko Bay area from where he made a series of photographs. Jan believes, the universe is the infinity of never returning moments. Just existence. Photography can capture a moment in this infinity that will never reappear. He hopes that one does enjoy these moments and the told or untold stories behind.

In a cloudy afternoon, I ventured out in the city of Joy – Kolkata with my DSLR with the hope to get some interesting frames. My destination ended at the Nakhoda Masjid, which is the principal mosque of Kolkata, India. It is located at the Chitpur area of the Burrabazar business district in Central Kolkata, at the intersection of Zakariya Street and Rabindra Sarani. I chose to shoot some unique frames rather than concentrating on the magnificient contemporary architecture. The prayer arena provided me with this spectacular visual conformity and I freezed the moment in no times as I did not want the sleeping man to be awake!

Photograph Location: Moichara, Gochara | West Bengal

Photographer: Sanak Roy Choudhury (Muscat, Oman) Registered Photographer
Sanak Roy Choudhury works as an clinical optometrist and research assistant at a reputed eye hospital in Oman. He likes to travel around and invariably loves capturing any interesting situation under any given circumstances. Although he was never very serious about photography his interest gradually started to convert to a passion which resulted him to acquire a DSLR on sept 2012. His baby steps started since then and slowly and steadily he started to understand the domain of photography and managed to grow immense interest in the fascinating world of photography. Sanak loves to class himself as an amateur and always strives to attain perfection on whatever he captures.
Today he has achieved many small recognition’s and managed to win several photography contests but his desire to learn and explore more remains a hunger to be fulfilled. Sanak does regret today after exploring to this splendid domain for missing some vital opportunities in his yesteryear’s of travel.
