Butterfly Lens: Capturing Mumbai’s Heartbeat

Embracing the city with the curiosity and flexibility of a butterfly, Suresh Naganathan seeks to embody the city’s multifarious heartbeat through his photography.

A WORLD CALLED MUMBAI is an intimate reflection on the juxtaposition of human resilience and urban fragility. Witness a unique blend of innocence, curiosity, and respect through the lens of a photographer whose journey transcends mere imagery to capture the soul of a city.

From Chaos to Harmony: Mumbai’s Resilient Dance

In A WORLD CALLED MUMBAI, the initial impressions of India’s bustling city are challenged and transformed. Initially perceived as chaotic and overwhelming, Mumbai gradually reveals its unique rhythm and character. Suresh Naganthan’s monograph depicts how the city, known for its sprawl and noise, subtly entwines itself into the observer’s soul. As India’s financial heart, the city draws an eclectic mix from across the nation, presenting the city as a microcosm of the entire country. This transformation of perspective is central to the monograph’s exploration of Mumbai.

A WORLD CALLED MUMBAI by Suresh Naganathan is an attempt to make sense of Mumbai. It is an ongoing exploration of the different. What at first appeared like chaos, slowly takes another shape.

“It is both a love letter to a place that has offered me so much and a small postcard for people to get a glimpse of what it feels to live here.” – Suresh Naganathan

The Photographer

Suresh Naganathan

Suresh Naganathan, a Swiss-born photographer with Indian roots, presents an extraordinary view of Mumbai. Moving to the city fifteen years ago, he embraced its culture, people, and stories with an open heart, translating his experiences into stunning photographs that resonate with authenticity and compassion.

Over the last few years, he has been exploring the streets of the world and of his home city, Mumbai. Wherever he goes, the camera is an integral part of him. He uses it to both explore the world around him as well as his own self.

The Monograph

The Photographer’s Vision

“To me, photography is an act of meditation, a way for me to connect with the world, a spiritual experience. I shoot because there is nothing else I’d rather do. It’s also a way for me to spread art in a world where it is less and less valued as a life pursuit or even as a hobby. I believe that with more art in our lives, we would lead a happier and healthier existence.”
