    Love the work. Why do you say you are influenced more by film/video, when there is so miuch exciting stills happening in photography?

    Thanks Mukesh for appreciation, i do agree there’s good work happening in still photography, and i also said i get inspired by whatever i see.
    But i don’t want to follow any particular photographer,
    as i like to evolve in my own distinct style.
