I never met the great photographer but I was due to play host to his maiden visit to Bhutan sometime this year. I was informed of the planned visit by his wife, Tania Dasgupta – a much sought after book designer based in Delhi. She designed my book “Bhutan Birds”.
I have been robbed of a lifetime opportunity to meet a photographer of immense talent. And, Bhutan missed the opportunity of being photographed by an unconventional visualizer.
The Ministry of Culture, Government of India is hosting a Memorial Meeting in honor of the great photographer on August 25th 2012. I will not be able to attend it but I take this opportunity to offer my condolences to his wife and two daughters.
