The Kali peasant and his hut with his bit of land
13.7 x 11.3 inch (h x w)
ink on paper

Framed like a polaroid photograph, Chittaprosad’s ink on paper snapshot of a peasant from Nagar in the Rajshahi district of present-day Bangladesh is typical of his uniquely sensitive documentation practice. Following the publication of his landmark work, Hungry Bengal, Chittaprosad toured East Bengal’s worst affected regions, interacting with people and finding out more about their lives. The subject of this portrait, captioned ‘The Kali Peasant and his hut with his bit of land’ looks directly at the artist (and the viewer), his furrowed face and hands recalling his hard labour under the sun which ensures people have food on their plates. With an uncharacteristic bounding box, it is as if Chittaprosad has delimited the man’s entire world, centred around a plot of land he calls his own.
