"I love you as certain dark things are to be loved, In secret, between the shadow and the soul" - Pablo Neruda
The above lines by Neruda illustrate perfectly Sarika's love with the shadows. She realised the magical effect of lighting early on and how shadows can be used to alter the mood of the moment.
Coming from a small town in Madhya Pradesh, Sarika dared to dream and moved to Mumbai and contributed in the field of Game Design in her initial days. Once she got hold of the camera, the appreciation of her amateur work gave her the confidence to devote full time to her new found passion - Still Photography. Within a short time, her constant experimentation with lighting effects, moods and places has given her a distinctive style which is admired by not just her clients, but by thousands of fans on Social Media.
In the last few years, she has worked with the biggest names in the industry and has received popular as well as critical acclaim for her work.
