Born in Bangalore, India, Ishaan was always fascinated by how things work. He explored this interest with a degree in engineering, followed by a more focused study of the science and art of photography at the Light and Life Academy. Today, he is a documentary and wildlife photographer who has worked extensively on conservation issues in the Peruvian Amazon and in India. He knows that in order to document wildlife, one has to be a good naturalist, and his work reflects his love for all natural life, from jumping spiders to Amazonian primates. He has managed a field research team in the Peruvian Amazon for Field Projects International, and balanced this with photography for Wildlife of India and Sahjeevan – a rural development organisation. His art has been published in Hornbill Magazine, multiple local and international newspapers, and online in National Geographic and Nature in Focus. In 2016 he wrote a book “Pastoral futures of Young Maldharis” in collaboration with Sahjeevan. Ishaan thus combines his love for photography and photographic techniques with his concern for the conservation of wildlife and the protection of the rights of indigenous populations worldwide.
