Based in Ahmedabad, India, Jignesh has a flair for candid situations and his philosophy when it comes to photography is “be patient and anticipate the shot”. A finalist in the Environmental Photographer of the Year competition, Jignesh’s work has been published on many platforms locally and internationally, including India Photo Art, Better Photography, Shutter, Street Photography, Eye Shot, nature.org and many more.

Picture a street scene in your mind – narrow bustling lanes, vibrant colors of people in local dress, vehicles of all types, maybe a traditional market featuring all kinds of exotic produce – and there’s a good chance that the scene you’re imagining could be a snapshot from India.
