Devashish Gaur (b.1996, Delhi, India) currently lives and works in Delhi. Working across photography and narratives, he has an interdisciplinary practice that involves photographic archives, topics of domesticity, distance, intimacy, found objects, idea of home and identity. His portfolio of India’s lush natural environments, stark concrete architecture, and domestic life paints one of the world’s most crowded cities as a place of quiet solitude.
“Gaur curates his narratives by combining old photographs requisitioned from family albums, archives, and vintage shops onto which the by-lanes of Delhi abruptly descend, with fresh documentation from his research. A number of his past projects are steeped in nostalgia, excavating material memory to reconstruct the notion of home and coalescing intimacies of different kinds—corporeal, social, or spatial. The slow-evolving continuities of domestic dispositions betray traces of the rapidly shifting backdrop of public life.”-Adwait Singh, Aperture Foundation
