    Gurnoor Singh
    Working mainly in the field of Street and Documentary photography, I like to capture the everyday moments and emotions of people in their environment and to tell stories that may have otherwise gone unnoticed. A lot of my work explores the human sub-cultures and societies that are belittled and highlights the ingenious qualities they have. I consider my work to be a visual representation of the connections between people, places, and emotions.

I thought there might be a water running down. I walked towards and to my amazement I saw this old mill just by the little stream. I set up my gear and there we go. I also fell into this stream as I was crossing. It was a cold January afternoon.

    As a deep space photographer, I like to take photos of outer space targets that our eyes cannot see. These photos require a lot of patience and a lot of clear nights reason why my telescopes are working almost every night when it isn't cloudy. Astrophotography is very different from all the other types of photography, a single photo sometimes requires tens of hours under the clear night sky but the result is very satisfying.In this photo, I would like to present to you the California Nebula
