“Beyond the catwalk, the stylishness of ordinary people in everyday clothes is captured by the discerning eye of the photographer Manou. Taking images across India, his work shows the continued use of hand-made textiles in a regionally and socially diverse society. A selection of photographs taken from Manou’s streetstyle blog, Wearabout, closes the exhibition with a final reflection on the pervasive, and persistent, nature of hand-made Indian textiles.” – V&A Museum / Read more.


Some of my photos were part of the Fabric of India exhibition co-curated by Divia Patel & Rosemary Crill at the V&A London.

“Most striking of all are the images from the street-style photographer, Manou, showing Indian clothes today – one of many gestures that bring the show to life and turn the fabric of India into fashionable clothing.” – Suzy Menkes reviews Fabric of India

Street Style Aizawl for ELLE India

June 9, 2018

“Fact: the needle on the Indian street style compass points duly North-East. Always ahead of the curve and — in many cases — defying it, the citizens of the Seven Sisters have a way of establishing their superiority in the fashion food chain that’s frustratingly effortless.”

recent stuff & plans | August

There is an Indian Street Style post on BuzzFeed made of my photos(mostly). Take a look.

Jonathan Longuet, a French artist, is making life size paintings of my photographs for an exhibition in Delhi. A rough draft.

Some of my photos were part of a street photography exhibit at Artscape, Baltimore.

Wearabout was on Tasveer Journal sometime ago.

I have an 8 page street style story in GQ India this month.

I have to interrupt my Northeast updates for now. They will have to wait. I was too slow miscalculated my blogging speed. WIll get on with it again in September.

Fashion week in Bombay started yesterday. Will be blogging from there.

Contemplating a giveaway. Would anyone be interested in old looking clothes & books?

Looking forward to leaving Bombay again in October & travel for maybe 6 months. My lease gets over; which is a great thing. The best. Looking at Dharamsala, Calcutta, & Sikkim. Maybe down south.

Also, I’m looking for someone to help me organize all my images and edit a lot of text. You get paid but it’s not much money. If you’re interested, write to me at wearabout at gmail
