Open Wounds: Bhopal 1984-2009
While documenting the on-going health crisis in Bhopal, I strived to portray my subjects with intimacy, meaning and depth.
I wanted my images to convey emotions, to stimulate our deeper and most innate feelings: our senses compassion, brotherhood and justice, in the hope of becoming an active catalyst for the promotion of awareness, action and change for the people of Bhopal.
My book, entitled 'Bhopal Second Disaster', has been published in October 2012 in New York City, USA, and is the winner of the '2012 FotoEvidence Book Award'.
