Prantik Mazumder: Kolkata (Calcutta)

I am on the look out for street photography out of Kolkata in anticipation of my forthcoming Kolkata's Cult of Durga Photo Expedition™ scheduled from September 29 to October 13, 2011.

Although I've already featured the work of Prantik Mazumder on The Travel Photographer's blog last year, I re-visited his website and discovered his Calcutta gallery which has a number of very well composed street photographs...vibrant colors, and lots of shadows. The combination of these colors, especially the red and orange, and the deep black of shadows really make these photographs stand out.

Prantik is a self-taught photographer, and is originally from Kolkata, India. He is now settled in Ithaca, New York, pursuing a career in scientific research.

Here's another of Prantik's photographs to show off his shadow play, which is from his PBase photo website.
