Hardcover with dust jacket, photographs, text and design by Sohrab Hura

"Life is Elsewhere is a journal of my life, my family, my love, my friends, my travels, my sheer need to experience all that is about to disappear and so in a way I’m attempting to connect my own life with the world that I see with a hope to find my reality in it. Life is Elsewhere is a book of contradictions and of doubts and understandings and of laughter and forgetting in which I am trying to constantly question myself by simply documenting the broken fragments of my life which might seem completely disconnected to one another on their own. But I hope that in time I am able to piece together this wonderful jigsaw puzzle called life. And this journey will perhaps lead to reconciliation with my own life."  (Sohrab Hura)
Life is Elsewhere focuses on Hura's relationship with his mother, diagnosed with paranoid schizophrenia, and is the first part of a 'two-chapter' personal project called Sweet Life (2005-2014). Sohrab Hura was born in1981 in a small town called Chinsurah in West Bengal, India. He is Magnum Photos latest nominee.
