About the artist, Mr. Mouhamed Moustapha, is a self-taught photographer based in Pondicherry, India. Hailing from an underprivileged domain of society in rural India, and having to overcome immense hardships to make progress in pursuing my passion, I had the good fortune of being able to meet, work with and learn from eminent personalities in the field of photography.

These experiences, and connecting deeply with the people and places that I have been to, has enabled me to hone my skills and view many profound aspects of the world around. He is also a recipient multiple awards like Nat Geo Moment award in 2014 from National Geographic Channel, South Asia award 2015, Monovision Photography Awards, London for street photography in 2018 and Gold Medal from Eyewin Awards in 2018.
