Artist Statement | Behind the aperture...
I am Sim, an outdoor photographer primarily focusing on landscapes along with portrait and abstract expressions. Presently based in Texas, I enjoy travelling and capturing the spectacular. With a touch of wonder, a dash of drama and a pinch of surrealism, my endeavor is to foster an appreciation of nature and emote a sense of beauty.
At the risk of sounding clichéd, I have wanted my right index finger on the shutter since childhood! Even as a kid, I always found myself clicking frames that the average person would not. Finally, in the fall of 2011, I bought my first DSLR (Sony α65) and then, began my serious relationship with photography. In 2014, I graduated to a full-framer (Nikon D810). I have not looked back since...except for bears!
Speaking of graduation, I moved from Delhi to the U.S. to pursue higher education. I have an MBA and a degree in Computer Science. It was during my years in school that I developed a taste for hiking. During Spring Break, I chose to head to National Parks rather than to South Padre island. The National Parks are my favorite thing about the United States. I intend to explore all 59!
I hope you enjoy my perspective shared through my photographs. Besides the gallery, follow my Instagram handle (link below) to see snapshots of my journey! Feel free to send me a message regarding travel, photography, or printing!
FYI, the Infinity S monogram that I use in my imagery derives meaning from an interpretation of my name "Simanta" - no limits, which is a working principle behind The Sim Exposure.
