I decided to create this series "Life in dark" when I was in a moment in life where everything got messed up, I felt alone and hadn't touched my camera for a long time. I was spending time in the armed forces being deployed in Siachen Glaicer, often referred to as the world's highest battlefield without network connectivity at -40 degrees, at that time I only watched sunrises and sunsets of the glacier. All around me was white but being away from home and my people, everything around me looked so bleak and dark. When I got back from my holiday, I decided to create the "life in dark", a series where I help find my way through life, creating art through lens and manipulation. The work is also presented and shared on my Instagram feed.
