Home Street Home (2013)

Vicky Roy was born in abject poverty in rural India. He arrived in Delhi at age 11 and lived and worked on the railway platform. He later went through a rehabilitation program through the Salaam Baalak Trust and studied photography both formally and informally.

IN 2007, he held his first solo show in India and in 2009, was chosen for a mentorship program by the US based Maybach Foundation wherein he photo-documented the reconstruction of the World Trade Center in New York for six months. His works from 
the “WTC: Now” Series were exhibited at the WTC in New York and at the American Center in New Delhi.

Vicky’s works have been a part of important international shows, including exhibitions at the Whitechapel Gallery, London and the Foto Museum, Switzerland. He has received many awards and accolades including the Time Out Magazine recognizing him among ‘Top-25 achievers under 30’ in 2009.

Home.Street.Home, his third solo show, is based on the monograph Home.Street.Home. published by Nazar Foundation, edited by Sanjeev Saith.
