He likes being called Batman and likes to hide in the shadows keeping his identity a secret. But unlike Batman, he doesn’t fight crime or protects the Gotham city his weapon of choice is his camera. We don’t know his identity but he is a daily dose of crazy compositions and framings and always challenges our perceptions about photography. Despite his anonymous identity he has been briefly involved in philanthropic works of Spreading Smiles and Colors of Nepal. He also initiated a project called “Giving back the Shots”, a self-funded project to give back the photographs to the respective people. The Project was hugely commended and was followed by numerous people.
