Kev’s Book of the Week Bombay Mix

by Ketaki Sheth

Bombay is a city that never sleeps. A lot of ‘living’ happens on the street, where a disparate and unlikely blend of humanity defines its boundaries in a tightly confined space.

The thrill of Bombay is the thrill of contrast. This work brings together the street photographs of an Indian photographer taken over a period of almost 20 years.

“Though we all bear witness to the same events and movements in the world, each of us interprets our surroundings in our own unique manner, stimulating contrasting emotions, ideas and beliefs.” Using her work documenting the Sidis as context, photographer Ketaki Sheth traces the trajectory of an idea, describing the phases of genesis and gestation of a project, the development following its birth, as well as the hurdles and glitches involved, before the final act of letting go. Ketaki Sheth has been a photographer for 30 years. She works on self-commissioned projects which sometimes take years to complete. Her work includes a 4 year project on Patel Twins in Britain and India (Twinspotting, Dewi Lewis Publishing, UK, 1999), 20 years of photographing Bombay’s streets (Bombay Mix, Dewi Lewis Publishing 2007), A Certain Grace: The Sidi, Indians of African Descent (Photoink, New Delhi, 2012) and her just completed first work in colour “Still Lives” due for publication. Having been exhibited in India and overseas including the National Gallery of Modern Art New Delhi, Photoink New Delhi, National Portrait Gallery London, Tate Modern London, Emile Zola Galler, Aix en Provence, amongst others, she has won the Sanskriti Award in India and the Higashikawa award in Japan for her work.
