THE UNSEEN WORLD
Roshan was born and brought up in Ranchi. Professionally, he is a Gazetted Officer in the Judiciary Department of the govt. of Jharkhand. Roshan is fascinated by Macro Photography. “I used to get allured with the pictures covering delicate details of the unseen macro world- especially tiny insects, which ultimately triggered my passion towards macro photography. My journey as a Macro Photographer started in the last quarter of the year 2018. Though I rarely get time to pursue photography due to my profession, but, whatever time I manage, I love spending it with my ‘macro subjects’. Some of my favourite venues for Macro photography are Horhap Jungle, Ranchi, Birsa Zoo, Ormanjhi and of course my own garden.”, says Roshan. Instagram: @macro_roshan
