Help Keep Independent Journalism Independent
Journalism in India has drastically changed over the years, and there are countless rational and irrational reasons on what is worthy to publish in a mainstream publication, or not. And while there is a tendency in many publications to publish stories that seldom find mainstream space, there is a cap on the number of times you can report on what is erroneously called the ‘subaltern’. I often work in the ‘field’ first, and then try and find space for work to be published, than cater to a market that demands its stories.
A body of work, is a documentation before it is allowed to exist in the mainstream or the alternative press. It is for this, I would like your help to ensure my boots are always walking, and my camera is always documenting.
Thank you, Javed Iqbal
