Freedom of expression, and life | Ritam Banerjee | TEDxIIITA

This was a talk about his own experiences with life, and how photography became something more than a passion for him, and ultimately came to define him as a person. Ritam Banerjee is an award-winning photographer and cinematographer based in Mumbai.

Based out of Mumbai, Ritam has never quite understood the need to create a niche. Shooting extensively across categories—travel, photojournalism, advertising, interiors, portraits, automobiles, fashion, food—he has always sought inspiration and challenge in variety. Ritam has framed things as disparate as spas and slums, ketchup and cars.
Over the last decade, Ritam has worked with corporates and publications across continents. He is also associated with the global agency, Getty Images.
Apart from stills, Ritam has been awarded in several International Film Festivals for his cinematography in feature films.
He has also been in the news for his theme-based calendars and his exhibitions across the globe.

This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community. Learn more at
