The Piece That Changed My Life: SwAti Bhatnagar (photographer, India)


Swati BhatnagarThis series was influential to me because I’ve come so close to capturing my own soul in these pieces. They signify ‘me’ in every form. They were taken at a time when all I had was a point and shoot camera. Since then I’ve grown and learnt that art must come from the heart and it’s important to think and ask yourself “why am I taking this particular picture..?” I believe each artist grows in their own way but never lie to yourself and your art and be true to it.
