I'm a writer, director and visual creative. @souvid
Mumbai and London are my homes: great metropolises which quickly taught me to come at life with principles of curiosity, perseverance and social vision. They led me to my degree in International Relations, Law and Conflict Studies at UCL, after which I went on to work as a freelance multimedia journalist and filmmaker.
Over the following years I completed commissioned and personal projects for commercial and editorial clients including Google, National Geographic Magazine, The New York Times, Channel 4, BBC, TIME and The Guardian.
Through narrative storytelling and visual-led investigations, my work continues to focus on under-reported contemporary issues, attempting to empathise with human aspiration and failure – particularly in communities where social injustice and inequality are rife.
The ultimate hope is to realise more worthy stories that earn their spot in everyday lives. To collaborate and learn from visionaries who have something constructive to say about the world. And to forge stories as powerful instruments to engage, and even change, minds.
