Statement from Sohrab Hura on the back of Man, Dog, Bird. Varanasi, India. 2005.
“I thought I had photographed only the dog and the man, until I processed my negatives.”
So, Sohrab Hura is an Indian photographer based in New Delhi. He is a full member of Magnum Photos. Hura’s self-published trilogy Sweet Life comprises the books Life is Elsewhere, A Proposition for Departure.
Above all, Sohrab Hura’s vivid, sometimes surreal photography explores his position with the world that he exists in. Though Hura initially worked through the prism of social documentary, he soon turned his strong vision inward, creating visual journals of his life and personal relationships as a means to “find his own logic”.
Hura was born on 17th October 1981 in a small town called Chinsurah in West Bengal, India. He grew up with many varied career ambitions but eventually settled on photography, after completing his Masters in Economics at the Delhi School of Economics.
Hura is currently based in New Delhi, India. He joined Magnum Photos as a nominee in 2014 and became an associate in 2018.
