IN CONVERSATION WITH PRITHI DEY

Interview by Melanie Meggs
Prithi Dey is a Londoner living in Sydney. Arriving in Sydney in 2002 on a 'round the world' trip, Prithi never left. Although her heart remains in London, Sydney has become her home. Always having a love for photography, taking a particular interest in architecture and intriguing street scenes, Prithi decided to take her photography to the next level by investing in her first DSLR and enrolled herself in a beginners course at the Australian Centre for Photography. It was during this time that she realised how much photography helped her with mindfulness. When out on assignments, she thought of nothing except getting the shot, finding good light, a nice composition, a good subject. This is when she realised how much she loved street photography. Through her images, Prithi hopes to reach more like-minded lovers of street photography and light.
"When I go out, all I know is that I want to find some nice pockets of light, good shapes, and hopefully interesting people to wander into them."
