My name is Jagdish Thackersey. I am a photographer based in Mumbai, India. I have an experience in photography since the last 50 years, having used my first camera during my days in school. It was at that early stage that I discovered my interest in photography and as the years passed this simple interest turned into a hobby and then into a passion. I like to capture anything that is pleasing to the eye, whether it be Landscapes, Sunrises & Sunsets, Silhouettes, Nature, People, Street scenes, Architecture, Wildlife, Portraits, Fashion or Glamour. I firmly believe that “Beauty is in the eyes of the beholder” and this belief has led me to capture images of things that we may see almost daily but not particularly notice.

My work has been displayed in recent years in India and Europe….
