“A World Called Mumbai”
The first images that come to mind when thinking about India may be the palaces of Rajasthan, the sadhus and mood of Varanasi, the colorful and gritty environment of Kolkata or the streets of old Delhi. As for the the well-known city of Mumbai, this is a difficult city to navigate – messy, overly spread out, and noisy.
However, after a few years in Mumbai, it begins to seep into your soul. You begin to notice some order in the midst of chaos. Mumbai, India’s financial capital, attracts people from all walks of life and from all over the country. It is, to a keen observer, a microcosm of India.

Embracing Chaos: A Multifaceted World
“A World Called Mumbai” by Suresh Naganathan is an attempt to make sense of Mumbai. It is an ongoing exploration of the different worlds that coexist within it. The series’ gaol is to show the breadth and depth Mumbai’s diversity. What at first appeared like chaos, slowly took 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.”
Eyeshot Magazine #10 | Open Call Edition
This is the tenth issue of Eyeshot Magazine always in limited edition of 500 copies, showcasing the thoughtful and creative photographs of the 70 talented photographers who have been selected as the winners, jurors’ picks and finalists of the Eyeshot Open Call 2022. The artworks were chosen from over 6000 photographssubmitted from more than 100 different countries, making this a truly global showcase of street and documentary photography.
Born in Switzerland in 1980, Suresh moved back to India, his parents’ country of origin, in 2008. Overwhelmed by the sounds, colors, and overbearing human presence in this new environment after 28 years in calm Switzerland, he picked up the camera in 2014 to make sense of all the chaos surrounding him.
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 2022 Eyeshot Open Call saw the submission of over 6.000 photographs by incredibly talented photographers from over 100 different countries. With the participation on an extraordinary jury composed of Marco Savarese, founder and editor-in-chief of Eyeshot, Magnum photographers such as Trent Parke and Emin Özmen, leading representatives of street and documentary photography scene – Vineet Vohra, Siegfried Hansen, Koci Hernandez , Mark Abramson and Isadora Kosofsky – and winners of the World Press Photo Award – Narelle Autio and Kitra Cahana – these artworks were selected for their visual storytelling, creativity, and style in conveying their unique observations of contemporary reality.
Street and documentary photography feel the urgency to elevate the streets of the world into theaters without requiring humans to perform. In front of each of these images, you can mirror yourself. Or you can also just look at them.
