About Sajini Ramesh:

Sajini Ramesh was a Chennai based self made photographer who pursued wildlife photography. She ventured into photography at the age of 22 and took to wildlife photography almost instantly. Her favourite subjects were the big cats and her work extensively covers them at various environments and locations.

She travelled to various places across the globe including Africa, Chile, Alaska, British Columbia as well as the national parks of India for her photography. She was very adventurous, travelled the world solo, drove all over India solo and climbed Mt. Kilimanjaro to name a few. She was a perfectionist and that played a role in her keen sense of aesthetics.

She is survived by her 5 pet dogs, photographs and fond memories.
