Koushik Sengupta inspires thousands with his mesmerizing clicks
If you are a fresher in the line of photography then there is one person who can definitely inspire you in your line. Koushik Sengupta, with more than 70,000 followers on Instagram, clicks awe-inspiring photographs. The journey started three years back while he was on his trip to Dubai which proved to be a life changing moment for him.
As he was mesmerised by the magnificence of the destination he clicked a few pictures and posted it on Instagram and within a few hours his wall was flooded with comments about his art. His Sony Alpha A7R3 camera captures almost anything that catches his attention- from stately buildings, picturesque landscapes to various hues of food and human expressions. The underlying depth of imagination is the hallmark of his photography. For him, photography is an inlet to self-expression, a means to channelize his energies and get creative juices flowing.
What next he has been into is philanthropy. He has stood in support, on Instagram, for the immediate reinstatement of Pre-Conception and Pre-Natal Diagnostic Techniques (PCPNDT) Act to save girls. He signed a e-petition demanding an end to selective abortion and also donated generously to UNICEF for the welfare of victims of social abuse. He is a feminist at heart. “No satisfaction is greater than being able to make a difference in the lives of underprivileged women who suffer from double discrimination- first due to dire poverty and another due to being a female and perceived as a ‘second sex’ in the society,” he says.
During this unprecedented time of COVID-19, he has contributed generously to the PM Cares Fund and West Bengal Emergency Relief Fund in an endeavour to augment government efforts to tackle the pandemic.
He regularly organizes giveaways on Instagram to motivate people to follow their hearts. For him, social media is not only a great platform to showcase talent, share opinion and network with friends, but it is also a means of self-expression and a reflection of creative freedom. It is a potent tool to usher democratization of information and give voices to teaming millions of people.
He is an inspiration to many people and we are sure that soon he will be growing more.
