Documentary photographer Anu Kumar was born in India in 1990 and raised in Australia. Her most recent and ongoing photo series, “Nagar” means “town” in Hindi and documents her trip to her hometown of Kavi Nagar, Ghaziabad, which is 2 hours away from Delhi. The photos were taken during Kumar’s daily 4pm “wanders around the village” with her two aunts.
Through her photography, Kumar engages and investigates her own diasporic identity as well as the beauty in the everyday. Her work focuses heavily on culture and beckons viewers to find similarities and beauty in the unfamiliar. Kumar is currently based in Melbourne.
