Adil Hasan: When Abba was Ill

Adil Hasan is a photographer based in New Delhi, India. He completed his photographic studies from Auckland, New Zealand. The themes he regularly explores and engages in his own work deal with time, death, and the shifting landscape that is memory. His constructed images are often, even to him, more like found images, sometimes gestating for years in bags of unprocessed film, or discovered in the memory banks of old phone cameras.

India –

Mahmood Hassan passed away in November 2012 in Jamshedpur, his hometown, where he had worked with Tata Steel for 21 years.

Adil is Mahmood Hassan’s son. He is a photographer based in New Delhi. He shot these photographs over 6 months as he came to terms with his father’s cancer. His old film cameras served as distractions from the reality of the illness.
