Swarat Ghosh: Beyond Street

Swarat Ghosh: Beyond Street

MonoVisions Black & White Photo Contest 2022

When I first started the project there was no idea in my mind. In the beginning, the initial intent for me was to capture a nice frame (aesthetically). In my mind, it was always to capture one single image from my entire day/night outing. I used to walk miles after miles just waiting for the moments to unfold in front of me and with the single mindset of not altering or manipulating the reality and respecting the candidness of the situation. One fine day I suddenly started looking at my prints and all of a sudden I realize there is a coherence of form/patterns/content etc. Maybe ten years down the line this project will have the social/cultural value of how streets in India perceived and captured by someone belongs to this part of the world.

‘Beyond Street’ was the Black & White Street Series of the Year 1st place Winner in the MonoVisions Photography Awards 2020.
