Photographer Bharat Sikka’s Indian Men is a fascinating study of urban men from the sub-continent. I could imagine someone I’ve met, known or seen in each one of these photographs. Presenting his stirring series.

    I’m the curator of the exhibition of Bharat “Indian Man” in Rome, Italy (Galleria Z2O – 12th February 2009): his work has been very appreciated here because it portraits a different Indian man out of (our) stereotype.

    My God I have seen Bharat when he first used to photograph Rohit Bal ‘s clothes. He was young and talented. Its nice to see that he has photographed people from all walks of life. Royalty- Pratap Sing Gaekwad, models- Milind Soman and regular guys, writers, a very different concept.

  11. These are such fabulous captures!! I’ve never thought… any of the above men.. would make such a difference to the character of the photograph!! Lovely!!

  12. Amazing!!

  13. 13 Annmm
