Asim Patel has lived in and watched India’s skin change over 40+ years, even as underneath it seems to remain quite the same. He is an alumnus of IIT-Delhi and IIM-Calcutta and has been working in innovation and management for 24 years.

Asim’s travel over the years for work and ticking away at his bucket list has let him gaze at many delightful places and along the way meet fascinating people. Asim began capturing such moments with his photography more than two decades ago, and informally learnt the arts of picture and audio-visual making under master lensmen and practitioners. He now regularly brings his enthusiasm for picture making and story telling to a kadakk boil on social media.

His first solo photo exhibition 'Oooh! Aaah! Delhi!' at India Habitat Centre in February, 2015 was received well, and his limited edition prints of images capturing the nuanced beauty that lives on unnoticed in so many Delhiscapes are now spreading smiles in homes from Nagpur to California.

His second photo-exhibition 'A Bucketful of Smiles' covering the body of his work was held May 23rd- 27th, 2015 also at the India Habitat Center in New Delhi and was a great success with most visitors carrying away not any single one, but multiple images and smiles in their hearts!

Asim’s bucket list of places to wake up in has always filled up faster than he can empty it, but lately he has been noticing some progress.

As our ever-growing bucket list slowly gets ticked away in our lives, smiles and experiences replace the names of places to see and things to do that have been driving our dreams for long. In over twenty years of vigorously ticking away at his bucket list, the images captured by Asim Patel span from the tallest mountains and ancient monuments to beautiful places and people of the world that we all grow up smiling in our dreams about.
