Doing What He Loves
Anjan Nag, New Delhi

“I live and work in New Delhi and manage to go home only about once or twice a year. Since my parents aren’t getting any younger, I started making pictures of theirs for posterity. This picture of my father is a personal favourite. It is routine for him to read the newspaper and he has a way of naturally getting engrossed in it.”
