About Sohrab Hura
Sohrab Hura was born on 17 October, 1981 in a small town called Chinsurah in West Bengal, India and he grew up changing his ambitions from one exciting thing to another. He started with dreams of growing up and becoming a dog, which later turned to becoming a superhero and then to a veterinarian to a herpetologist to becoming a wild life film-maker. Today he is a photographer, after having completed his Masters in Economics. He is currently the coordinator of the Anjali House children’s photography workshop that takes place during the Angkor Photo Festival, Cambodia every year and his home base is New Delhi, India.
Life is Elsewhere is the first of the two books from the work Sweet Life by Sohrab Hura and is being exhibited at Sensorium.
Sohrab began making the photographs in the book, from 2006-2012 while he was in his mid to late twenties. The photographs, were a response to his coming to terms with his mother’s prolonged illness. She had been diagnosed with schizophrenia when he was nineteen. While in the initial years Sohrab focused on just the photographs, over time the work shifted shape to one of a journal which include letters and notes written over the years along with the photographs to create a completely new narrative leading up to the second and final part of Sweet Life.
Life is Elsewhere is the first book by Sohrab Hura.
