1.'Relocated' porter from Kolkata - Tom Price

Location: Kolkata, India
Display one of the market porters in Asia's largest wholesale market - Barabazar in Kolkata. They have to complete their herculean task of carrying implausibly-sized objects through the bustle of a mega market everyday to make ends meet. The photographer, TOM PRICE and their teammates, relocate these porters into a more surreal landscape. The series is an attempt at representing something of the migrant labourer’s experience; the sense of dislocation, the burden of their work.
