Lens man Ravi Kanojia dies on assignment covering drought
34 year old, @lensmanravikanojia was on assignment in Jhansi to photograph the drought in Bundelkhand, UP. As part of the drought coverage for Indian Express, Ravi climbed on top of one of the wagons, to capture the quality of water inside. He opened the iron lid but came in contact with a high-voltage overhead electricity line, that ended his life instantly.
Known for his award-winning work during the Muzaffarnagar riots and his recent investigation titled District-Zero, tracking how dismal indicators of education for children in Nabarangur, Odisha are slowly changing, that day (9th May), Indian Express lost one of its finest photographers.
What makes Ravi special for us is that his imagery pushed the agenda for children during the course of his career.
Here’s a look at his remarkable work, that is going to leaving a last impression for years to come.
