for the 2018 edition of the emerging photographer fund, we continue to introduce you to the jury members one by one.... here is sohrab hura.

@sohrabhura lives and works in new delhi. in 2015, he published his first now out of print book, "life is elsewhere" and in 2018, went on to publish its paired book, "look it’s getting sunny outside!!!." he also recently published, "a proposition for departure," a 20-page music notation book to lay out the blue print of his attempt at creating a three movement composition using the sound extractions he makes from his photograph. he self-publishes his books under the moniker ugly dog and will publish his fourth book, "the levee" at the beginning of 2019. he also makes films out of his photographs. "the lost head and the bird" opens a window into hidden aspects of contemporary india—an absurd and chaotic world where the boundaries between fact and fiction are blurred; and where the undercurrents of caste, sexual, religious and political violence lurk beneath the surface. it has won the nrw award as well as the special mention in the international competition at the 2018 international short film festival oberhausen and continues to be shown at film festivals around the world through 2018.
sohrab hura is an associate member with magnum photos and is represented by experimenter, kolkata. --- “i started the epf because i could see there was a funding void for many talented young photographers. it's all about discovering the next generation of visual storytellers,” says burn magazine editor @davidalanharvey. i'm very excited to see who the 2018 super talents will be." huge thank you to @loyd, @magnumfoundation, and @fujifilmx_us for making the epf possible.
