Photo Essay

We captured moments, nuances, interactions, stories from everyday life across our vast country, between us and our cup of tea - an everlasting bond that’s inextricably woven into the very fabric of our national identity. The lens that was used to document this epic journey was ‘everyday surrealism’ - we knew it cannot be explained rationally, it can only be felt subliminally. This is a labour of love that took us from Kashmir to Kanyakumari, from Nagaland to Jaisalmer.

Tea Society Initiative

A lot of people showed a lot of interest in buying images from the photo essay series. That’s when it struck us that we can do some good by making it more than a campaign, and that’s how The Tea Society Initiative was born. And so we tied up with four NGOs doing a lot of good work with their respective cause. This way, when you buy a Tea Society image/s that you really like, you also get to donate the proceeds to a charity closest to your heart.
