ICC - Harnessing Light with Trupal Pandya


About Trupal

Trupal Pandya stumbled into photography 9 years ago while touring India’s hinterland, DSLR in hand. What began as a hobby eventually transitioned into a full-time career and overwhelming passion. He went on to study Photography at Fashion Institute of  Technology, NY and had the chance to intern under Magnum photographer Steve McCurry, well-known for his iconic photograph ‘Afghan Girl’. Trupal’s work has been featured in publications such as CNN, Huffington Post, and National Geographic. From refugees in Iraq to headhunters in Nagaland to the tribes in Omo Valley, Ethiopia, Trupal not only documents the lives of rarely seen communities but more importantly connects with them as well. He believes in diving deep into the world of whomever he interacts with. For him, photography is just 5% of his work. The rest is the process behind the photograph. Trupal’s ethos-be authentic and sensitive-is clearly seen in his photography style . It is that thrill of showing the world what we don’t see every day that encouraged him to continue his journey and pursue a career as a documentary and a portrait photographer.
