Charan Singh at Clifford Chance

01 June – 15 September 2017


A selection from Charan Singh’s portrait series Kothis, Hijras, Giriyas and Others is on view at Clifford Chance. The photographs document homosexual Indian sub-cultures. The series title comes from the indigenous terms used by queer working class and transgendered men, often forced into sex work, to define their different and particular sexual identities. In Indian society, where class and caste are still major forces, these three groups are among some of the most marginalized.
