My name is Amrit Panigrahy. “Quarter-life crisis” turned me into a self-taught freelance photographer, a storyteller and a traveller. I STILL have a full time job of being an “accidental” equity research analyst, though. You can read more about me here. I take fairly good photographs (or so I would like to believe). You can explore the photos below. I write short stories, poems, travel tales and also about history, photography and life in general. You can explore all these in the menu at the top.
