This catalogue brings together portraits and self-portraits by Indian photographers. We attempted to reflect the conscious and the unconscious, the portrait and the self-portrait. They aren’t separate; one is inside the other. The word ‘otro’, meaning ‘other’, is die cast over the printed words ‘yo’, ‘y’, ‘el’, (i.e. ‘self’, ‘and’, ‘the’), revealing a background of loud orange. The rest of the cover pales in comparison with this colour, forcing us to take a look – it is slightly indistinct but the intensity of the orange makes it ultimately legible. As indistinct and as clear as the relationship between the self and the other, between the photographer and the sitter.
