Take a fresh look at your lifestyle.



Behind the lens, without a language, the stories are narrated, and many times far better than what the words can describe…that’s the artistry of visual storytellers.

August 19, commemorating World Photography Day, SUBURB poses a question to photographers to know If the inspiration of their photography changed from the pre-pandemic times to the current times?

Priya Ranjan

Ranjan is a bestselling author and a street photographer. He loves meeting, engaging, and photographing diverse humans globally.

Pandemic worked like a blessing in disguise for me. I got an opportunity to work on related photography areas that encompass reviewing my work through archive folders, starting a photography blog, engaging more with the photography community on Instagram, enhancing editing skills, and reading dozens of books on art. I continued
with deep learning.

Artists need to continuously seek inspiration and learn new skills to take the game to the next level. Even if COVID was the most challenging phase in everyone’s life, but I didn’t let my passion diminish. In fact, I kept it nurtured to explore new dimensions in the art.

Founder of brand Rendezvous with Rashmi, she specializes in portrait photography and is passionate about capturing candid street shorts. 

Ever since COVID-19, emotions have shifted. While pre-Covid times were dominated by fear, now people have adapted to the new normal. Small, mundane things that people do to derive happiness or earn a living appear more appealing and relatable. I am even more appreciative of the people around us and how what they do forms such an integral part of our society. My inspiration has definitely shifted towards those finer details that define what we call life. 

 Shailja Narita

An avid traveller, a marketing professional who left her corporate job to pursue her passion for content writing and photography. She does diverse photoshoots including wedding photography, maternity, street life and more.

When the skies were pink, everything was seamless. I would go free-flowing for outdoor & indoor professional shoots. However, the pandemic changed everything; the lockdown came as a big blow. All shooting assignments were put on hold, but I missed most were photo walks.

Restricted within the four walls at home, I realised that it’s a wonderful feeling to create something beautiful within the means available to you. Beauty could be created anywhere just by changing the angle of your lens that you use to see the other side.” The same principle applies in life-Nazariya Badlo; everything looks beautiful. I have started exploring more in photography and started creating more artistic pictures, conducting photography workshops just by adjusting my angle of viewing it differently.

Shikha Agarwal

She is an artist & art educator, works as a cultural events coordinator in KalaGram, founder of NGO Udaan Ek Meetha Sapna.

Pandemic pushed me to explore areas away from habitation that helped me connect more closely with nature, and photography came in handy for this. Nature taught us to be more aware of ourselves, more introspective, and more mindful, resulting in a calmer and happier life.

Amit Bhatt

The Director of Integrated Transport at WRI India lives in Gurgaon and is passionate about running, cycling, & swimming, apart from clicking pictures.

The lockdown put on hold work-related travel and interpersonal interaction with people. There are new work norms now. I am getting more time to explore new areas of photography like wildlife photography and especially I love to capture birds in my camera lens.
