ABOUT THE BOOK & AUTHOR

Vicky Roy was born to parents who were too poor to raise him. They gave him away to his grandparents when he was two years old. At the age of eleven he ran away from his home in Purulia – "I wanted to roam around" – and boarded a train to New Delhi where he spent the next year on the railway station, and at a dhaba, collecting used plastic bottles, washing dishes, making chapatis. He slept in night shelters – "you could use a blanket for two rupees" – till he came under the care of the Salaam Balak Trust. Vicky became literate, but couldn't cope with the idea of an education. He found a friend in a camera – "I felt it would help me roam around" – and decided to photograph others like him, living on the street and in the Trust’s home, Apna Ghar.

Vicky's first exhibition 'Street Dreams' opened at the IHC in the EA gallery in 2007. His photographs have now travelled across several countries. "I've only been to three", he says.

'Home Street Home' showcases the best of this work, from survival to choice, portraits of his fellow travellers, a mirror of his own life, observed with recognition.

The book and Vicky Roy have been widely written about in the press. Below are links to a few selected publications.

NAZAR PHOTOGRAPHY MONOGRAPHS

We believe that important photographic works must be seen as books whether they are commercially viable or not. Each monograph, featuring a photographer’s work on a single subject / theme, will be beautifully produced, but priced reasonably to make the work more accessible.

NAZAR PHOTOGRAPHY MONOGRAPHS 03

KANU’S GANDHI by Kanu Gandhi

hardcover | 150 pages | 92 photos with cover image as an actual fine art print pasted under a window cut into the clothbound hard cover.

Price: 3000

ABOUT THE BOOK & AUTHOR

Kanu Gandhi, Mahatma Gandhi’s grand-nephew came to live with him in the Sevagram Ashram and became his lifelong follower. Gandhi allowed Kanu to photograph him on the condition that no flash would be used and he would never be asked to pose. Though some of Kanu Gandhi’s images are well known to us, he was never credited for them. And even though some of his images have been reproduced in books on Gandhi, his work has not yet been published as one body of work nor has his work been acknowledged for its historical and artistic importance. Culled from a long forgotten archive, the meticulously researched, painstakingly restored and exquisitely produced book reveal rare and personal photographs of the Mahatma during the last ten years of his life.


The book was launched at the Delhi Photo Festival on 30 October 2015.
