Join Kavi Pujara at Stills as he presents ‘This Golden Mile’, a documentary photo project made over five years, exploring a neighborhood in Leicester synonymous with migration from the Indian subcontinent to Britain. Kavi will discuss the project’s origins, the challenges encountered during the process of creating a long-term photo series, and the evolution of his working practice.
Kavi Pujara began making photo projects in 2016. His first project, This Golden Mile, became his first monograph, published by Setanta Books and his first solo show at the Martin Parr Foundation in 2022. Images from this series were selected for the Taylor Wessing Portrait Prize 2022 and placed him as a finalist in the Aperture portfolio prize 2023. He lives in Leicester with his wife and two children and splits his time working as a film editor for the BBC and working on long term personal photo projects.
Two images from the project will also be on display at the Scottish National Portrait Gallery from 17 June – 10 September as part of the Taylor Wessing Photographic Portrait Prize.
