tomalprice Tom Price

I’m a documentary photographer, writer and filmmaker, currently based in London, UK.

My work is people-centred, with a focus on inequality and empowerment, especially in women and children; our future lies in their success. In style and process, I blend documentary photography with environmental portraiture. I shoot and edit short films, and can write everything from snappy captions, to articles, to longer context-rich trip reports.

Born in Wales, I’ve worked in the UK and overseas on a wide range of issues: from peace building in South Sudan, to social enterprises and socially-minded celebrities in the UK, to survivors of typhoon Haiyan in the Philippines, to victims of domestic violence in Brazil.

Akram Ali Khan, 26
London
By Tom Price
17 Dec 2015

Akram has worked here since he was 20 years old, delivering chickens to the market traders from all over Kolkata.

‘There are many people from my village who come and work here, so that’s how I learnt about this place.’

Like many others, Akram sleeps in the market, often waking at 4 AM to join the queue for those using the few toilets in the market.

‘I have a lot of friends and relatives here, we have a lot of fun. We drink here, we go out, we relax and have fun.’

‘I don’t go home, this is more of a home to me.’

‘I’m looking for a girl to marry now. If a girl proposed to me, I would say yes, immediately, whoever it is.’

Dr Amirtha visits Vimala, 75, who has been bed ridden for the last five years and suffers from hypertension. Vimala is classed as being ‘BPL’ (Below the Poverty Line) by the government and sleeps directly on a hard wooden board on her bed in a house made of breeze blocks and mud. Her husband passed away and she is looked after by her daughter-in-law Syamela, 45, and a neighbour who visits her regularly. When the team visited Vimala, she was very disorientated and largely unable to communicate. When Dr Amirtha asked if she remembered her name, Vimala responded, ‘Yes, I do’.
