Today is Lohri, a Punjabi celebration. Lighting a fire and waving phallic vegetables around it; forget what Wikipedia tells you about it being a celebration of winter solstice. Lohri is a time to celebrate your sons. Having a son is probably the greatest achievement in the wider Indian culture; if you manage it, you’ve basically succeeded in life. This brilliantly ludicrous attitude has caused the lowest ratio of females to males in India since records began.

Well, screw you, Lohri. We’re turning you on your head. We’re celebrating Lohri for my beautiful niece, Siyaan. She deserves to be celebrated just as much as any other child. For how can we expect our girls to prosper if we stunt their growth from the beginning?

We’re celebrating life. Real, meaningful life, not just how many sons you have.  We’re celebrating Indian men and women making their mark on careers, travel, family, friends, hobbies, food, art.

Happy Lohri! Join us and celebrate Lohri for your daughters as well as sons.

My Nani looking out over Kenya, the country she lived in until she emigrated to England in 1975.

Eyes filled with tears moments after we arrived at Kericho Gurdwara, a Sikh temple which she holds very dear.

I’ve realised that by creating portraits of my grandmother, I’m trying to finish the body of work that my grandfather started. This is one of my favourite images he took of Naniji, back when they lived in Kenya.

A friend kindly lent me a 50mm lens; I used it to shoot some portraits this weekend.

Where Am I?
