André Jeanpierre Fanthome’s first photographs came off a Zenith 122 in 1999 while he was still an undergraduate at St. Stephen’s College. In 2009 he was awarded the ‘National Academy Award for Visual Art’ by the National Lalitkala Academy – becoming, at 27, the youngest of three photographers to have  received this National Honour.

Fanthome loves to teach photography and give youngsters an opportunity to discover the power and excitement of the medium, something he discovers afresh every time he points his lens in a new direction.

In addition to photography Fanthome is an avid naturalist, a keen birder and loves cooking!
