Dear visitor, welcome to my online crib!
First of all I must confess that I cannot afford the illusion of grandeur by writing my own bio in third person. My name is Syed Priom. Colleagues and acquaintances call me Syed; family and friends call me Priom.
I am a data specialist by profession. Currently I am working as a senior data technologist at JLL. Software Engineering in the past involved interaction between engineers and machines. At present it involves engineers interacting with machines and also various stakeholders. Software Engineering is a social activity now, not just an engineering discipline. Today good communication and client focused problem solving mindset are as important as technical prowess.
On this website you can access my photography collection. I fell in love with Photography because it opened the window to a new world for me. I could describe things I see from my own perspective and communicate perhaps a more important meaning through the world that I perceive. A photograph is not about the objective view of something – I would call that an image. A photograph on the other hand must convey a message to viewers.
Although I am by profession a software engineer, this website is less about software and data, and more focused on my practice of Photography and Philosophy. “What is Freedom?”, “How to live?”, “Why are we here?” – these questions are not easy to answer, but we must continuously revisit these questions and seek the answers.
Feel free to poke around and write to me if you have any question.
