I’m a London based freelance photographer. I take pictures of people and places and like to dress up and go to gigs.  

 

A Bengali lass

 

I grew up in Scotland, a daughter of Bengali parents. I got my first camera when I was 10 and soon discovered the secrets of darkroom film developing. Since then, I have taken my camera around the globe. I have worked in human rights, civil society and am now a marketing account director at a creative educational agency, specialising in education.

My name is unusual and some find it hard to pronounce. In folklore, Lamia is considered a succubus, a female demon appearing in dreams who also possesses the power to take out its eyes and see into the future. Although a vivid dreamer, I do not claim supernatural powers, but through photography encourage the viewer to see the world through eyes other than their own.

 

My goal is to show the beauty, grace, strength and enthusiasm of people. I prefer to work with non-models, capturing candid shots of normal people in exaggerated or perhaps not so obvious situations. If you want a print or like what you see for a project, get in touch.
