His current body of work revolves around his roots in the small city on the eastern coast. Both philosophically and artistically, this particular body of work from the exhibition: Brink, curated by Monica Jain is about using the idea of the sea, a constant companion and bystander while growing up, to create interactions with the Self, imbuing it with deeper meaning through image-making and conceptual photographic practice. The sea remains present and permanent in him (re)appearing in varying forms that are extremely poetic, personal and layered. These photographs are stories by themselves and not necessarily in any sequence. In his quest for learning more about art, he has been travelling for quite some time. Most of his works are acts of rumination rather than resolution and remain highly autobiographical in nature. \
