About the Book
This photo series captures the life and aspirations of the traditional Kushti wrestlers in Mysore. Speaking and understanding their feelings about it, gave my story a personal perspective. I saw how they felt deeply for the nearing death of the art of Kushti and want to bring it to an audience. Wrestling as you may know, is one of India's oldest indigenous form of martial art.
I was a part of a group of artists and photographers who recently graduated from an Independant Book Publishing workshop organized by SF Camerawork. This party would mark the launch of all the books published by the graduating students. This is my first attempt at independent book design & publishing.
