Join Kavi Pujara at this months Creative Coffee as he presents ‘This Golden Mile’, a documentary photo project made over five years, exploring a Belgrave in Leicester an area synonymous with migration from the Indian subcontinent to Britain.

His first project, This Golden Mile, became his first monograph, published by Setanta Books and his first solo show at the Martin Parr Foundation in 2022. Images from this series were selected for the Taylor Wessing Portrait Prize 2022 and placed him as a finalist in the Aperture portfolio prize 2023.
