Sushavan Nandy’s haunting series highlights the effects of rising sea-levels on the Sundarbans region in India

Sushavan Nandy experienced the devastating effects of flooding first hand, as a child living in Jalpaiguri in North Bengal, India. Due to repeated floods in the 1990s, he and his family were forced to leave what remained of their home and relocate to Kolkata in 1996. “It not only affected the landscape and our property, it affected our human lives and relationships,” says Nandy, who was reminded of these struggles during an assignment in the Sundarbans, a cluster of low-lying islands in the Bay of Bengal, spread across India and Bangladesh.

There, rising waters caused by climate change is slowly drowning its coastal communities, and recognising the same disruption that Nandy experienced as a child, the photographer decided to begin a long-term personal project.
