Since she can remember, Sita has had a keen interest in photography, as her father is a professional photographer and her mother an artist who always encouraged her to be creative and use her imagination.

One of her first memories as a toddler was seeing her father develop his photos in the then seemingly mysterious and magical darkroom. She started asking him many questions about photography from a young age. Her first camera, of the simple point-and-shoot variety, was an important formative gift, but also a slight disappointment, being a “big girl” at four years old, she had hoped for a “real” camera.

From there on in her interest in photography grew and developed. She learned various skills over the years. She started with old film cameras, then proceeded to digital slr’s and editing techniques.

When asked what type of photographer she is, she prefers not to limit herself to one genre because as she puts it, “we live in a world full of interesting things to photograph”. She loves photographing people, capturing natural moments, zooming into the hidden or small things in life, seeing beauty, telling a story, sensing nuances, looking further and
seeing beyond.
