TITLE : A WORLD CALLED MUMBAI
PHOTOBOOK
AUTHOR : SURESH NAGANATHAN

 

Suresh Naganathan takes us to discover his city, Mumbai, with his photos.

It is always a difficult task to document and portray the place where we grew up.

In this case the same compositional structure reveals a world composed of many layers.

“My book is named “A World Called Mumbai” because I have never come across a place that’s felt bigger and wider than this city.

Very fast, I realised that one life would be enough to explore all the layers, the places, the cultures that make up this mish-mash that’s Mumbai. To me, it feels as big as the world and every week I find something new to document.

This book is a succinct summary of what I have seen in the last 10 years. There’s a lot more to witness and I hope to keep doing it for the foreseeable future.

If you want to get a glimpse of this intense city from the comfort of your home, my book is available for pre-sales.”

Born in Switzerland in 1980, Suresh moved back to India, his parents’ country of origin, in 2008. Overwhelmed by the sounds, colors, and overbearing human presence in this new environment after 28 years in calm Switzerland, he picked up the camera in 2014 to make sense of all the chaos surrounding him.

Over the last few years, he has been exploring the streets of the world and of his home city, Mumbai. Wherever he goes, the camera is an integral part of him. He uses it to both explore the world around him as well as his own self.
