A couple of years back I visited London. Before my trip, I pestered Shahidul Alam for names of photographers, photo editor and photo agencies. People he knew well and whom I could meet to show off my own portfolio. On the top of his list was Kalpesh Lathigra.
I called. We talked. He was busy. But, we could meet. For a bit. At lunch time. Perfect!
Lathigra, is a London-based photojournalist. His images are full of energy. They are emotionally charged and have the sense of intimacy that many photographers simply lack. His web site displays a large breadth of work that also belies his age.
