Sameer Raichur


Tales of memory, nostalgia and roots surround the photographs by Sameer Raichur. Situated in urban and rural landscapes, the glimpses of a way of life discarded in favour of ‘progress’ that he provides are based on relevant yet fading socio-cultural themes. 

The digital medium of his work is empowered by the interactions he has with the people he meets along his journey to capture beautiful, often forgotten stories. It intersects the essences of documentary and fine-art photography at the point of anachronistic narratives.

Based in Bangalore, Sameer (b. 1986) loves being outdoors, with a special place for hiking and trekking. He also thoroughly enjoys reading, with Tommy Orange’s ‘There There’ being one of the latest additions to his list.
