Kunal Bhatia

Mentor

Kunal Bhatia is a Mumbai and Bangalore based photographer, architect and writer. He works across the three disciplines and finds inspiration in cities around the world, in the people that he meets and in encounters that are often fleeting. Kunal believes that photography is a medium to not only capture the lives, moments & emotions that surround us but also the means to interpret, dwell & reflect upon these experiences.

Some of Kunal’s selected works are also available as fine-art prints; and in mid-2016 a book with Kunal’s photography of Mumbai’s housing-typologies was launched. Besides photography workshops, Kunal is also engaged in teaching photography via how-to tutorials and photo-walks.
