Where:  Primal Art Gallery (NCPA), Mumbai

Santanu Chakraborty created this photographic series when reflecting by the banks of the Ganges in Kolkata, during a dark period in his life. In an interview with The Hindu, he said, “I listened to my voice, laid everything bare and tried to express myself via images of a place I used to go to for solace. I am happy that it has moved a lot of people.” The series represents a quest for calling, and the photographs emanate depth of emotion.
