    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:

    " I remember this one time when I was ... I had this very strong

    attachment for somebody and we held hands in a very public place in Calcutta and it was the most ordinary thing to do, but for both of us it was very di erent.
    It was special, it was almost like being there, being visible to everyone but hiding everything."
    Pawan, West Bengal - 2017
