DHARAMSHALA, FEB. 24: A noted Tibetan photojournalist working for the leading Indian Daily The Indian Express has bagged yet another laurel for his photography, this time it is the Photo of the Year at 'The Hindu Photojournalism Awards' in Chennai on Saturday.

Tashi's photograph that captured a 21-year-old manual scavenger at work during day break in Raj Nagar near Delhi fetched him the award for the ‘Photo of the Year’ at the first edition of The Hindu Photojournalism Awards.

The photograph that was published in the Indian Express, and the work of 11 other photojournalists were recognised at the event held in association with the Chennai Photo Biennale (CPB). Tobgyal received a cash award of ₹1.5 lakh.

Tashi had previously won the national award for excellence in journalism in 2015 in the ‘photo feature category’ and received the prestigious honor from the then President Pranab Mukerjee on the National Press day. Just last month, Tashi received the prestigious Ramnath Goenka Award for excellence in news photography from Union Home Minister Rajnath Singh.

Tashi describes his job simply as “something akin to religion” and has completed many well received photo features such as the ‘Inside the Death Valley, The Kedarnath Massacre’, ‘The Inside Story: Rat hole Coal Mining in the Jaintia Hills and ‘Reporting via Panorama ’among others.

"Well, Its always nice to be recognized, appreciated and awarded for your work. Acknowledgement does a lot to inspire and encourage more. Indeed, I have been fortunate to have been judged and felicitated by the finest in our industry. It's a blessing", Tashi told Phayul last month on winning the Ramnath Goenka Award.

Tashi hails from Sonada, Darjeeling and studied at the St. Joseph North Point School. After his schooling, he joined the Aligarh Muslim University. He worked for Outlook Traveller before joining Indian Express.

His blog, ‘The shutter speed journal’ accounts for all his work and establishes a unique brand of storytelling, where he writes, “At the end, all that remains is stories”.
