Until very recently, the Indian lifestyle was one of community, but the move towards greater individualism has inspired the work of some increasingly introspective photographers.
A pioneer of this new intimate approach, Pablo Bartholomew has produced a dense body of work, based on his youth in the libertarian India of the 1970s and 80s. In his wake, Atul Loke has become a key witness of the disappearance of collective life by always photographing the building where he grew up. This immersion in the collective Indian psyche intensifies with the work of Sohrab Hura, whose private journal documenting his mother’s schizophrenia caused a sensation in a society where the maternal figure remains absolutely sacred.
