He is interested in mundane micro-histories, found-objects and vernacular photography. Co-founder of Leh based art space and small batch publishers called Farside Collective, Debashish has also co-founded Art Book Depot, India’s first independently organised art book festival. Debashish is also enthusiastic about cinema, geography and visiting museums.
