My First Publication

Sun Sep 7, 2014, 7:37 PM
I’m super excited with some of the recent turn of events and the awesome news that it’s brought along with it. The Asian edition of the well renowned and critically acclaimed novel, ‘Shantaram’ by Gregory David Roberts, has been adorned with my photograph on its cover. The two volumes of the book are being published by Book Republic Group, Taiwan. 10,000 copies of the book would be printed initially and will be distributed across several countries in Asia.

Nothing really beats the satisfaction of seeing your photograph end up on the cover of such a critically acclaimed novel. :D

Ratul Upadhyay
Artist | Hobbyist | Photography
Ratul Upadhyay, ‘the man’ who’s been featured here on this page, happens to be a freelance hobbyist photographer and designer currently settled at New Delhi, India. You read that right, a hobbyist and not a professional because he firmly believes that the soul of an artist within a person dies once he considers himself a pro. His family belongs to the heart of the Himalayas (Himachal Pradesh, India) and henceforth proximity of these surroundings since childhood have made him much more aware of the beauty that surrounds a human being, adding that much needed dose of zing and vitality to what could very well turn out to be a mechanical, monotonous and mundane life.

The trees, roads that disappear into infinite horizons, wild flowerbeds stretching out into the blue sky, the meadows, peaks and valleys, rainbows and storms, the heaven and earth, and just about everything in between sum up his individuality, persona and character. Starting out pretty young on computers and his keenness to indulge into just about anything mechanical and tech related has helped him over the course of years to hone his programming, web designing, graphic designing, and digital processing skills. And secretly he happens to be a great story-teller too, is fond of freestyle writing and sketching, but sssh, don’t tell anyone.

His powerful images are part of contemporary iconography, and a cross section of his own personal interests with commercial nomenclatures. So there you have it, that’s about it! A completely self taught photographer, a self-proclaimed tech junky, loves his alternative & soft rock music, and for whom this life is nothing short of Awesome! Meet Ratul Upadhyay, academically a student of Information Technology and a freelance hobbyist designer in his spare time.
