Seeking solutions in art. And art in everything.

Our planet’s dizzying beauty and wonders fascinate every child, and Prakash was no exception. Prakash retained his obsession with wildlife as he grew up, which has kept him rooted in love and reverence for Earth, leading him to become a fine storyteller as a filmmaker and cameraman.

For over a decade now, among numerous creative pursuits, he has taken up every opportunity to bring wildlife conservation stories from India to a discerning global audience. His vision, towards which he sincerely strives, is to craft stories that tug at the heartstrings of people from all walks of life and to evoke in them a genuine love for the natural world. Splitting his between creating films for non-profit and government organisations that support wildlife conservation projects and doing camerawork for broadcasters such as the BBC, Discovery, Disney, Apple TV, Animal Planet and National Geographic, 

As a National Geographic Explorer, Prakash creates a much-needed, inspiring, and engaging nature-education video series on high-conflict wildlife species for children in India who live close to the forests. He says investing in children’s educational visual media is vital to building long-term tolerance towards and love for wildlife in them.

Prakash hopes to be persistent in his quest for natural beauty while, through his work, shedding light on some of the most urgent issues that pose threats to it. He says that art does more than raise questions – it finds answers, too.
