Jagadish Upadhya is a passionate photographer who strictly practices film. He’s been actively involved with the medium for the last three decades and intends to continue in time to come. Through Photography, Jagadish tries to instill a simple framework of life, inadvertently establishing a justifiable way of lifestyle.
His interest goes beyond the just the visual aspect of photography. He believes in fusing different techniques; experimenting with various alternate printing methods to express that his practice and lifestyle is as one. Capturing people in their daily lives and festivities of his hometown Kathmandu is where he keeps his shooting practice alive. Recently, he’s been exploring his relationship with water, delving in the idea of a flow. Jagadish had constantly been on the move. He left Kathmandu in his late teens for Russia, then to Paris and finally to America before coming back and settling in Kathmandu. His photographic journey started in Paris but obtained formal education in the States. Photography gave him the stability he wanted in life.
In his free time, he loves to explore about plants, aliens, alternative lifestyles and make his own furniture out of junk. To continue this passion and to pass down the skills of analogue photography he now runs a collective along with his friends under the name film foundry.
