My name is Antony Sebastian Francis, but people generally call me DUNDAPPAN and I like it. I am just another normal (OR AM I) human being who considers himself to be a member of the elite class of creative humans!!
LOL, just kidding.
In fact, I am one of those kids who was fortunate enough to accidentally stumble upon the realization that I could click not so bad photographs and had the political freedom to write anything and call it poetry. Hence I decided why not torture the world with my works. Thus La Photographie was born.
I hail from a place known as “GOD’S OWN COUNTRY”-KERALA, a small state in the southern half of my awesome country ,INDIA. I was pretty ignorant of my passion for photography until one day I clicked the picture of view outside the window of my room and realized,” Damn, that is not bad!”
From then on it has been a journey trying to experiment with my passion, working to sharpen it, ensuring that it is put to good use. Even then poetry wasn’t my think. i was quite resolute about my belief that I was not made for creativity involving words and sentences.
But that was until I met her. She made me believe in myself. She said, “Anything coming from the heart is beautiful! So write, Write from your heart.” and I found out that I could in fact write and not care what others interpreted it to be. But for me my poetry is the truth, the meaning, the question, the solution. It is what I want it to be. It is my heart poured out in word and rhymes and alliterations. And I am eternally grateful to her for helping me discover myself.
Thus I started incorporating poetry into each of my photograph trying to add a new meaning, a new dimension to it.
I also have an Instagram page “DUNDAPPAN” where I vaunt all my photographs. If you guys are interested please visit sometime and if you like then please do follow.
