Presentation by Akina Books:
" An optimistic street seller looks at the news and wishes the monsoon will end soon. On the street corner, a girl is dancing to the music of men’s smartphones, a rich man gets out of his fancy car after a crash and gets lynched by a mob, while a woman is disfigured by her alcoholic husband, in the rage of a moment.
With ANGST, Soham Gupta walks the back streets of his Calcutta at night, witnessing stories told by taxi-drivers, outcasts and runaways.
The caustic humor of his text, together with the sensitivity of the portraits, freeze the atmosphere of bitterness and angst which like a glove fit Calcutta and the image given by the Indian Media. "
Texts by Soham Gupta in English only. This project won the « Cosmos PDF Award » during the Rencontres d'Arles festival in 2017.

Publisher's presentation of the photobook: "Never-ending bridges where concrete is always within touch, the noise symphonic in cacophony, the spectrum between male and female which blurs distinctions and renders them irrelevant, the transition between life and death, the search of intimacy in a place where everything can be found for sale, from humans to...
Publisher's presentation: "Anaesthesia is a lament of several voices, a symphony of the evil in us, cinematically edited screenshots from videos, an engagement with the media, an open criticism to war and terrorism, a declaration of neutrality, an act of rebellion to the ego, where one stands alone prevented to feel anything else beyond his own...
