Magnum Photos Photographer Profile

Sohrab Hura 

Indian, b. 1981 (Member) 

For the person that I am, I cannot afford to try and have authorship over any language over time because I don’t think I’m capable of surviving that repetition and this strong feeling within me of one’s photography being destroyed by one being a photographer has provided me a life line. I have to try and just survive for as long as I can. ” 


Sohrab Hura was born on 17th October 1981 in a small town called Chinsurah in West Bengal, India and he grew up changing his ambitions from one exciting thing to another.
