A self-taught photographer and film-maker, I have always strived to celebrate both the moving and the still image in my visual expressions. Born in Kenya and raised in India, I am also influenced and inspired by cross-cultural artistic endeavors. My film-making activities have included four short films (and some commissioned films) made for Filmaka.com. My photography has featured in promotional material for the Swiss Arts Council's India office. Since 2010, I have won over 30 honors at the International Photography Awards (IPA), the Prix de la Photographie Paris Awards (PX3) and the Photography Masters Cup (Color Awards). www.nyaybhushan.com
Entry description: One of India's most popular actors with a career spanning three decades, Anil Kapoor arrived on the international scene with his appearance in "Slumdog Millionaire". As one of the rare actors to have his feet firmly planted in mainstream commercial Bollywood cinema while making inroads into Hollywood, Kapoor is constantly balancing two worlds. And thus going global in the process.
