EDITORIAL
Eternally Sixteen
“Sell yourskill, not yourconvictions.Make yourmoney but live for the art.”
 We bring in this sixteenth anniversary special issue with so many mixed feelings. Joy for turning sixteen, pride for being the bestphotography magazine in India, and sorrow for the passing of yetanother legendary photographer, Jagdish Mali, who was very dearto
BP
and to me personally. There is some solace in knowing thatJagdish lived a life full of passion and zeal. Those who knew himwill remember him as being wonderfully friendly, approachable,open minded, ever giving and forever young at heart. When we had contacted him sometime ago, for being a judge for POY 2012, and for being a part of this issue, he had politely declined, citing commitments beyond his control. At the moment, I cannot help feeling a twinge of selfish regret that I had not interactedwith Jagdish more. I keep thinking of a piece of advice that he had given me a long timeago, which I took to heart. “Never lose yourself to being a commercial photographer,he had said. “Sell your skill, not your convictions. Make your money but live for the art.Otherwise, it will suck up your soul and leave you empty. There is no existence worsethan being a hollowed out photographer with nothing inside.”Somehow, despite his passing, I also cannot help but think his quintessential youthsprung from his being a photographer, a characteristic that all photographers seem toshare. In that sense, I have never met an old photographer. I am writing this editorial fromthe Rift Valley in Kenya, where the
BP
team, along with the category winners of POY 2012, are in the middle of a superb, adventurous face-off, travelling to Africa’s deepestgorge and to a pristine lake island little known to tourists. The contestants come from allbackgrounds and ages, and from all over India. And yet, they are all wonderfully young inspirit and at heart. The common thread that binds them is photography. Photography isbeautiful because it always keeps you learning and yearning to see something new, makes you fall in love over and over… keeps you eternally sixteen.

 What does it take tomake an exultant photoproject? Why should wewalk that extra mile?Why must we keep lookingthrough the viewfinder?And why should wecontinue making magic?Saibal believes, “Making aproject is not a hit-and-run thing. You learn towork as a photographer,a creator, a visionary, allat the same time.”
