Siddharth Sanghvi

I was commissioned to photograph Siddharth Sanghvi, an Indian prodigy and extremely well known author of our times for Canteen Magazine. Sanghvi has been compared to Salman Rushdie and Vikram Seth in his writing styles, especially for using settings of magical realism, and themes such as karma, love and sexuality extensively in his very applauded book The Last Song of Dusk. Here are a few of my favorite images from the shoot. Above all, he was a delight to work with and a great person to brainstorm about life, love and image making.

    Manjari, this Indian 4×5 work is splendid—all of it. You make me want to experience the light of India myself, first-hand.

    Well done sister. BTW what camera were you using?

    These are very evocative. I am a film shooter as well, and I gotta tell you how much I LOVE seeing these are film.
