KASIMEDU – A fishermen’s village
August 30 @ 5:30 pm - 7:00 pm UTC+5.5
YPS Meet Live | August 30, Sun | 5:30 PM | YPS Facebook page
Royapuram fishing harbour, also known as Kasimedu fishing harbour is one of the major fishing grounds and shipbuilding facilities located at Kasimedu in the Royapuram area of Chennai, India. Contained within a small area with 4-5 small lanes around a bustling pier, the place is both densely populated as well as intensely busy. He says, ‘Here I am always trying to find a moment in time detached from the busy pace of business all around, to find a corner of explicit beauty between the squalor of well lived spaces, to find a whiff of life amidst the lifeless fishes that are brought to the harbor…’
‘Kasimedu to me is a place with a character so vibrant that it captures my attention and my heart in an instant every time I go there.’
Sri Udayan Sankar Pal has captured the vibrant coloured homes and lives of the people in his signature style of bold and beautiful!

Born in 1979, Udayan Sankar Pal grew up in Canning (WB, India), the gateway of the Sundarbans. He has been dabbling with photography since he was 13 years old. Hailing from a village himself, his eyes are drawn towards those elements that he can identify with, that are hidden from a city dweller. He has honed his skills over the span of 28 years and has received over 3000 awards both from National and International photography contests. He has also been awarded many distinctions and honours. He has started participating in National and International Salon in 2017 and till June 2020, received 3093+ acceptances and 319 awards from 54 countries!
Udayan’s interest in photography extends to many other aspects beyond just clicking photographs on his own. He has established the only international Archive of Photography Exhibition (APE.net.in) in the world with over 10,000 brochures in his collection right now. He also is an active contributor to magazines and journals where he likes to pen his thoughts about photography and share his knowledge with other like-minded photographers. A respected mentor to budding and amateur photographers, he also has been invited to many events as a thought leader and speaker in the world of photography. He also believes in propagating the art form through various other initiatives such as running photography salons in India, acting as a judge in many national and international salons, supporting photographers by purchasing prints and building a gallery dedicated to the art called Signed PRINTS (SignedPRINTS.net), building a world class personal library of rare and iconic books on photography with over 1000 titles painstakingly collected over many years, collecting and curating a well acknowledged collection of postal stamps related to photography and many more such initiatives.
He says photography is all about the eye. You either see things or are influenced to see things. Having travelled a long way from the bare feet camera toting village lad to a selective shutterbug and a passionate pursuer of the art of photography in all its forms, he truly believes that photography is his religion
