I was born in Soreng, an idyllic town situated on the hills of western Sikkim, India. Unlike my subjects, I left home when I was 5years old for my education and have lived away ever since. The photo series titled “Homebodies” is an attempt to explore my town through the people born and raised there, after all its the people that make the place. These portraits were taken leading up to the annual Independence Day celebrations where the diversity and unity of the people are celebrated with great fervour.
