Vineet is a self-taught photographer and street photography is his passion that he lives like a discipline.
Born in India, Vineet holds a master’s degree in fine arts from the prestigious college of arts, Delhi and is currently one of the best Street Photographers in the world. Vineet initially started shooting as a wildlife photographer but turned his sights to the streets in the early 2000’s. He instantly felt the raw connect with the candid moments of life. To Vineet, street photography is a journey to be traveled daily. He feels a there is a continuous degree of learning and unlearning and is always seeking for improvement. Life, in general, is so unexpected, expresses Vineet, “I try to be as honest through my lens as I can. I try to synthesize between human elements and the environment while maintaining focus on how to make ordinary moments look extraordinary.”
In 2011 Vineet Vohra formed Art Photo Feature (APF) along with his brother, Rohit, who is also a street photographer. APF is born from an education imperative, it’s an evolving magazine that seeks to recognize fresh talent across the globe. The intent is to provide a platform for emerging photographers, artists, and designers to showcase their works, works that are not necessarily commercial, in order to create opportunities and open new doors for these budding artists. The subjects explored are broad, in terms of concepts, styles, and techniques. “We want to explore the limits and the possibilities,” says Vineet.
Vineet is also the first Indian Leica Ambassador and conducts Leica Academia workshops in Singapore and New York at the Leica Galleries.
