Presentation by Sohrab Hura:

"Over the years when my mother's condition started to improve I started to photograph at home more. Apart from my mother the focus of the photographs also included her dog Elsa who had been her sole companion at home for many years and also the house itself whose condition deteriorated or improved as my mother's illness regressed or progressed.

Her relationship with Elsa which had substituted intimate human contact as simple as touch or conversation all these years, had played a big part in my mother's improvement. In February of 2014 Elsa died having grown old in her 13th year. That winter was a strange one because for the first time it had rained everyday and the sun wasn’t seen on most days.

Towards the end my mother had even opened up to my father with whom she had separated almost 15 years ago. It was her separation with him that had triggered her illness in the first place."

Sohrab Hura is an Indian photographer, member of the agency Magnum Photos since 2014. He works both on documentary projects, with a focus on bringing attention to difficult human situations, and on personal projects. For the latter, he created his own imprint Ugly Dog to publish his photobooks. He has published the "Sweet Life" tryptich: "Life is Elsewhere" (2015), "A Proposition for Departure" (2017) and "Look, It's Getting Sunny Outside" (2018) in which he tells of his own life, his family, his mother and her dog, his friends. In 2019 he self-publishes "The Coast", a strange story / fiction that includes manipulation of the storyline, created from moments seized along the Indian Coast. Then in 2020, still self-published, he releases "The Levee", the story of a trip in the Southern United States, where he focuses on the ever-present levees along the Mississippi and Ohio Rivers, and on their symobolic meaning.  © Portrait taken from the Magnum website
