Photomarathon is an annual on-the-spot photography contest organised by Canon. This year, three topics were given to the participants—Freedom, Standing Out and On the Job. The image below is a part of the winning series taken by freelance photographer Kaushik Chakravorthy. “The topics were disclosed only moments before the countdown had begun,” recalls Kaushik. “I took some time to let the topics sink in. Then things slowly started to fall into place. I began to see the topics everywhere! I shot many images and it was tough to select one image per topic. But at the end of the day, it was good fun!”
Based in Mumbai, Kaushik has been into photography since a decade. Today, he freelances for advertising agencies and corporate clients. “Photography gives you an opportunity to see things differently and hold on to the moment,” he says. “I like seeing things differently and I enjoy what I do.”
