    About The Work

    Zameen Asmaan Ka Farq (As far apart as the Earth is from the Sky )

    Through photographs and texts the project 'Zameen Asmaan Ka Farq'  documents the culture of touch between Indian men who live at the intersections of homosocial culture, friendship and love.

    My fieldwork has taken me to urban centers, remote villages and tribal hamlets in sixteen Indian states.
    I collaborate with individuals from a wide range of castes, classes and religions to make analog, medium-format portraits and record our conversations (to date 120+ recorded conversations in 12 languages).

    Quote on text sheet:

    " As in – there’s a lot of a inity in our public.

    Kinship is di erent from friendship. There’s an attachment in the hearts of friends. A friend always keep his friend’s good in his mind.
    Our – in our Marwari language, it’s said ‘sau jana – shiri ni jana chahiye’, as in ‘wealth may go but there should be no sourness in the mind of one’s friend’ – our friendship stays connected. Right? This how a friendship is between our people. So, they don’t bother about their wealth.
    They want to carry out their friendship till their last breath. This is our belief."
