Around 2010, when I dove into my archive as a way to find a new direction to my photography, I came across many images that were about a vernacular visual language typical to India. Around the same time I had also begun to photograph in the square format observing the irony, idiosyncrasy and inventiveness that abound in Indian life. Thus was born Indianisms.

You can look for meanings in the images, or consider them as Full Timepass Only. Either way - Please Relish!

Indianisms refers to words or phrases characteristic of Indian English, often literal translations from the vernacular.

REVIEWS (extracts)

"For someone of Prashant's generation (like me) reading the book is an out-of-body experience, it's like revisiting your life as it happened to someone else, someone more engaged, with a better eye, who looked harder." – Mukul Kesavan, Biblio Review of Books

"Between banditry and farmer suicides, Panjiar tells us many stories – his own, of print journalism in post-Emergency India, but the most crucial story he narrates is that of India itself." – Shreevatsa Nevatia, India Today
