about me: Kulvinder Singh Matharu

"I am SilentNomad, a traveller with a camera!"

I was born in Tanzania but emigrated from Tanzania to the United Kingdom at the tender age of two. The UK has been my home ever since.

Growing up in the UK, I developed an interest in science, engineering, geography, and art. At school, my career aspirations oscillated between earth sciences, physics, and electronics, but I eventually settled on studying a degree in electrical and electronic engineering. After graduating, I took up a career in telecommunications, data networks and, more recently, cyber security, but I retained my interests in earth sciences and art.

I have also developed a passion in travel photography, pedalling furiously on my mountain bike, and travelling off the beaten path to far flung places; seeing the natural world, and the people in their varied cultures, is quite exhilarating, and I hope to have captured their beauty and fragility in my photographs. The phrase “Take nothing but pictures, leave nothing but footprints” has been a continual guide in my travels, creating a “silent nomad” no less. But I do take more than just pictures, and I leave with more than just footprints; these are memories, emotions, and friendship.

This SilentNomad website includes many of my images such as photographs and digital paintings. The photographs have an emphasis on my travels, where I hope to have brought out the magic and character of the places I've visited. I've also linked to my blog where I rant and rave, mainly about absurdity and irrationality, but can include articles on almost any topic ranging from mountain biking equipment to colour management work-flows. Perhaps there's something there that might interest you!
