While on our way to Rinchenpong, Sikkim we stopped on a hilly road for breakfast and refreshment. On the other-side of the road is this small barber shop. What attracted me most in this photo is the barber himself sitting on the customers chair and also the advertisement written in bright colors on the tin walls of the shop.

Working for a MNC as an IT professional, photography to Joy Acharyya is a way to relax, to play with his imaginations to create visual story – rather more of a creative release. It all started with a Nokia N73 cell phone in the year 2010, then when he first publish those photos gave him the mental boost and encouragement to pursue this hobby with more seriousness. After that there was no looking back. As an avid reader and collector of comics and graphic novels he likes to create and work with those imaginative single panel visuals in his photographs. Though he is an enthusiastic lover of all form or style of photography, but his main interest lies in capturing day-to-day human activities, their emotions, street-life and working on theme/topic based photo-stories.
