News Among the several kinds of visual storytelling is the poetic — one that deftly portrays a story in its truth fiction or somewhere in the gap between the two Photography has transitioned from several genres (such as photojournalism documentary fashion etc) into a form that invites a dynamic engagement with text and other media The photobook is no exception Chandan Gomes 28 has recently authored a moving book of photographs words and drawings (latter by AH Bano) titled This World of Dew (Photoink) “I grew up in a modest neighbourhood in Delhi and photography for me is a medium to reflect on my emotional and intellectual concerns” says Gomes He studied philosophy at St Stephen’s College in New Delhi and also received the India Habitat Centre fellowship for photography in 2011 This was followed by the Oslo University scholarship to participate in Chobi Mela (Bangladesh) in 2012 the Neel Dongre award in photography in 2013 and the Foto Visura Spotlight grant in 2014 This World of Dew was released recently by photographic artist Roger Ballen At first glimpse the book resembles a school notebook — pocket-sized unassuming and a pleasant departure from the intimidating coffee-table book It is about Gomes discovering a small sketchbook by a little girl called Aini Hasina Bano who he can’t seem to trace Gomes then embarks upon a journey to the hills travelling through Himachal Pradesh Uttarakhand and Ladakh making photographs and writing words that interpret her drawings of the mountains without letting them get in the way of her story In 2012 when he finally manages to find Bano’s village in Baran Rajasthan (by way of a tip from a nursing intern who had tended to the girl) in order to give her his photographs he discovers that she had been ailing and had died before he found her book She was 12 She had never visited the mountains The tragedy is irreversible but Gomes lends her imagination a new form while conceiving the book His photographs imitate Bano’s sketches almost letting her author his work in return Excerpts from a conversation with him about the book and its making: Where did you find AH Bano’s sketchbook In 2011 while commissioned to photograph a hospital in Jaipur I visited a hospice called Avedna Ashram I found a book with drawings of mountains on a shelf there Suspecting that it might’ve belonged to a child perhaps housed in or visiting the hospice I tried to trace the owner for a couple of months but it was in vain The book had no name and I decided to keep it The drawings in the book are by a little girl and yet they are not entirely childlike The skies are all but simple the mountains take on different colours and are placed oddly Were you keen to explore this aesthetic Yes the sketches were unusual sometimes uncanny I’d decided to travel with the book to the hills in order to photograph the landscapes but I never wanted my photographs to overshadow Bano’s sketches Did you always have a book in mind for this journey At first I only wanted to travel return with my photographs and give all of it to the child when I found her I never thought of this as a book project or even a photo essay I often thought about how the child was clueless about my engagement with the book and that perhaps imitating the drawings would be a good way to start understanding her sketched landscape and bring it back to her as a token of appreciation from the world outside Did her drawings introduce you to a new way of looking at the mountains when you travelled to them Certainly I did approach the landscapes in a raw manner making sure that my photographs did not have an agency of their own Some of the girl’s drawings were almost impossible to find as real scenes For me the drawings were a tryst with her imagination and they forced me to imagine what I would strive to find in my photographs Each time I returned from the mountains I discarded the clever images This book touches on intimacy and loss but it also celebrates a bond between two kinds of visual media and the text How did you weave these together I would say that it all started with a little curiosity — but it was frustrating as well For Bano the drawings of the mountains were probably a remembrance of the future while for me the photographs were about remembering the past I wrote constantly in my diary as I travelled with hers My entries were indulgent ramblings the kind that most people scribble when they’re young But as I made several trips things started to fall in place I was travelling inside the mountains as much as along them and I was constantly travelling inside myself The thread between my photographs writings and her drawings wasn’t loose anymore When you found out about Bano’s death you were heartbroken Was there a sense of completion (of your journey) or was it an abrupt end The news of her death did not bring any sense of completion at all Knowing that she had been very ill and had actually never seen the mountains saddened me deeply She had died even before I had found the book I knew that I could never meet her to give her my photographs The journey felt a little aimless and I dropped the idea of making anything out of it altogether It lay in my hard drives It was only in early 2015 that I revisited all the content and started compiling them into a book I noticed that the first and last images in the book are reproductions of the front and back of Bano’s only photograph Yes those are both sides of her only known photograph — and she’d coloured on either side In many ways there is a sense of this fable coming full circle The final published book is intentionally like Bano’s sketchbook It is pocket-sized easy to carry and refer to Her sketches and my photographs lie next to each other like miniatures drawing the reader in to pay more attention to detail I worked on the photographs sometimes using filters to make them appear as close to the drawings I chose a paper with the feel of handmade paper so that it felt like an artist book This memoir too lets people make their own assumptions by lending them several entry and exit points into both Bano and my imagined journeys Paroma
