Nagar // नगर // Town


Nagar - meaning ‘town’ in Hindi - is a photo series made in Kavi Nagar, Ghaziabad, India.

I started my life in Kavi Nagar. I was born there in 1990 but left when I was 8 months old when my family immigrated to Australia. Throughout my childhood, my family would visit Kavi Nagar every two years in the hope me and my brother would remain connected to our Indian heritage.

The images, made during daily 4pm walks with my Aunts, represent a starting point. The beginning of a sustained effort to reconnect with, and understand my heritage.
