Sourav Das’s future perspectives is to explore the humanist and street photography as a tool to reach the common people and to capture the social changes happening around. He believes, it will be the way to look vividly into our social customs and it’s relation to humanity. It is his strong belief that the humanist and street photography would be able to sketch our socio-humanism as good as a novels, songs, or drawings do. Therefore, as his future goals he would like to apply the concept of humanist and street photography to reveal our uneven-social-customs, and to compare his findings with those of the contemporary novels, songs, and writings.
