N. Sukumar, APSA
I am a scientist, photographer, conservationist, wilderness enthusiast and educator. I was born in Calcutta, India, obtained my Ph.D. in chemistry from Stony Brook, New York, and have worked in the US, India and Germany, having spent about half my life in the US and half in India. I now reside in the outskirts of New Delhi with Sunanda, my wife of 30 years, also a chemist and educator.
I have served as president, webmaster and chair of the Slide and Fine Arts groups at the Schenectady Photographic Society, as well as Editor of its Newsletter, the FOCUS. I am also served as Program Chair and 2nd Vice-Chair of CPID and webmaster of CPID and the Nature Division in PSA. I have exhibited at several local and national galleries, presented programs at PSA and other international conventions, and been published in art magazines and the PSA Journal. My main photographic subjects are nature, landscape, travel and figure. I am fascinated with abstracts and the indirectly perceived. I also paint in pastels and oils. I enjoy both wet and digital darkroom work.
