On graduating from The Srishti School of Art, Design and Technology in Bangalore in 2007, Bikramjit Bose moved to Mumbai in 2008 to pursue photography. After a brief apprenticeship, he started doing commissioned projects – shooting portrait stories, photo essays and fashion editorials – contributing to magazines like Elle, Vogue, Harper’s Bazaar, Marie Claire, Grazia, Rolling Stone and GQ India.
With a particular love for black and white imagery and a narrative perspective to a lot of his work, his approach to photography is essentially that of a portrait photographer. Whether they are stark, minimal studio portraits or narrative-driven fashion editorials, it is always the human element that is the focal point of his work.
While, his pared-down aesthetic sensibilities are reflected in his portraits, he also draws a lot of inspiration from cinema and the works of cinematographers, which in turn, he seeks to reflect in his fashion stories.
