Priyesh Balakrishnan- Featured Photographer An Interview by Photo Concierge

Priyesh Balakrishnan is a passionate photographer who dotes on the fields of Product and Documentary Photography. Ask him to tell you why his interests lie here, and he has a rather moving response to share. “Product and Documentary photography is where my primary interest and specialization lies primarily because I find these two genres the most challenging. All photography needs to tell a story, a requisite that presents itself as rather a challenge in these two genres. In product photography, the ability to tell a story and make the viewer want – no – scratch that – desire that lifeless cold object- that is the stuff magic is made of. On paper Documentary photography sounds easier. However, it is far from that easy.”

 

Priyesh’s inspiration for photography begins from within. He has been, what he defines, a raconteur all his life, with a restless spirit. Priyesh firmly believes that the world is filled with wondrous stories just waiting to be discovered. These are stories so powerful, so beautiful it reminds one of how wonderful it is to be human! “Over the years I found myself chasing and documenting these stories, from hill to valley, from beach to burning desert sands. Pictures being worth a thousand words and all, I gravitated towards photography to help me tell these stories. What started as a tool to tell a story became a passion, a passion that became a way of life,” he explains.

“But I will say this… photography is about telling a story! If you believe you are destined to write the Great Novel of this decade; does it really matter if we use a pen or a laptop?”
