Passion makes man capable to achieve what he desires..
There are two great days in a person’s life – the day we are born and the day we discover why.
Raj Mayukh Dam
A documentary photojournalist and filmmaker. The field of art, photography & film-making are the passion of his life, and due to that his eyes are always in search of art and stories in every corner of the world.
It is said that “ if we all could see the world through the eyes of a child, we would see the magic in everything ”.
How photojournalism came to his life and turned into a full time profession, it was a prolong process in various stages. From his childhood days drawing, paintings and making creative things was the part of his everyday activities. Later his academic studies in healthcare science and business management, did not allow enough time to enhance his creative side of mind. And that was the stage when his passion of drawing and paintings turned into photography.
As the year passed by he went much deeper and deeper into this photojournalism field with self practice. His eyes started observing and seeing simple things of everyday life in a creative way. So one fine day he decided to quit his full time job in healthcare field and to start this photojournalism career.
Well, at that moment from his family and friend’s point of view it was not a wise decision to change career all of a sudden. But from his past professional experiences in healthcare counseling and public relations management, which contributed opportunity to explore and understand the stories of each individual person more closely. Slowly he understood what he is doing and what he expects from this career. It’s not about only to make good portraiture and documentary stories, its more likely how he can deeply understand and connect himself with the subject psychologically, before clicking the shutter. And the most important part of his work is to express the meaningful purpose of our life in a broader sense.
And today with each passing day his knowledge and experience in photojournalism work reveals his inner originality, the understanding towards this world and human civilization.
One has to love the humans to understand the uniqueness of each culture. Warm hospitality, simple ways of living and sincere judgment of the opinions are some of the basic traits in every culture.
I slept and dreamt that life was joy. I awoke and saw that life was service. I acted and behold, service was joy..
