Life is Elsewhere
A deeply personal project from Indian photographer Sohrab Hura focusing on his relationship with his mother who was diagnosed with paranoid schizophrenia in 1999
In the summer of 1999, when he was only 17, Sohrab Hura’s mother was diagnosed with acute paranoid schizophrenia.
“Life is Elsewhere is a journal of my life, my family, my love, my friends, my travels, my sheer need to experience all that is about to disappear and so in a way I’m attempting to connect my own life with the world that I see with a hope to find my reality in it. Life is Elsewhere is a book of contradictions and of doubts and understandings and of laughter and forgetting in which I am trying to constantly question myself by simply documenting the broken fragments of my life which might seem completely disconnected to one another on their own. But I hope that in time I am able to piece together this wonderful jigsaw puzzle called life. And this journey will perhaps lead to reconciliation with my own life.” – Sohrab Hura
