As part of the Alkazi Photobook Grant submissions, we are happy to share another project. As we go through the decision making process, here is another extraordinary book that was received. Anshika Varma: The Wall Anshika Varma (@anshikavarma) is a documentary photographer with an interest in personal, collective and mythical histories. Through her work, Anshika explores the intricate relationship between memory and object as markers of one’s identity. She is also the Founder of Offset Projects @offsetprojects, an independent space focussed on the act of reading images. Her photobook submission, ‘The Wall’ is a mixed media book project that attempts to understand how natural environments impact our sense of being, specifically within urban structures. With experiments in printing, drawing, text and photography, the book looks at the developments around the Central Ridge in Delhi, a recurring landscape in the photographer’s life and is a reflection of the fragility and fleetingness of urban city forests today. The book is an exploration of the relationship between urbanity, imagination and verdant spaces that are sometimes forgotten. #photobookgrant #photobook #bookmaking #bookart #delhiridge #naturephotography #photography #landscape #forest #urbanforest #naturalhabitat #memory #visuallandscape #delhi #photoartist #indianartists #printmaking #documentaryphotography #mixedmedia #anshikavarma
