He began his career as a photojournalist and has travelled extensively throughout Asia, focusing mostly on Southeast Asian communities. He recently finished an extensive photographic series on Myanmar after visiting the country many times during the past decade. These images will be published in a new book later in 2013.
Shekar was also commissioned by the Indian government to document Emerging India in a series of photographs which are now being displayed at Indian Consulates and High Commissions around the world.
