5. Dileep Prakash studied history in Delhi. He worked as photo editor for major business magazines in India before giving up a full time job to set up his own practice. A considerable part of Dileep's personal work navigates memory and history. His fascination for steam locomotives began early when he traveled between his boarding school and home. By mid-1990's most steam engines had been phased out and he photographed some of the last steam trains. His project on the Anglo-Indian community led him to the far corners of India, making portraits of a community in twilight. Since 2007, Dileep has been photographing boarding schools built by the British in colonial India. He began this project at his alma mater Mayo College, a school built in 1875. This body of work is published as a book and is being exhibited at Photoink titled What Was Home at Photoink, New Delhi.
