I'm Not Here

7.33in X 11in | 156 pages | ISBN: 978-93-5526-650-7 | Printed at Naveen Printers, Delhi

“Perhaps home is not a place but simply an irrevocable condition.”  James Baldwin

 

“I’m not here” is the author's exploration of the idea of home. It’s the journey of his transition from adolescence to adulthood. Through the evolving relationship with his parents, their dog, and the landscape of Shillong, “I’m not here” is the author's search for his irrevocable condition.

Anurag Banerjee is an independent photographer from Shillong based out of Bombay. His work "Love in Bombay" explored intimacy in public spaces in the city and was widely published in print, exhibitions and online. His first photobook "I'm not here" is slated for release in January 2022.

 

partnerships

Also launched in 2021, this is a program wherein we will partner with other institutions to produce lens-based art works, exhibitions and projects.
