"This is a document of life, love, and in particular, of Hura’s mother’s mental illness. The black and white contrast is familiar but the themes of family sorrows, regrets and the discovery of new love are heartfelt and moving."
Selected as one of the Best Books of 2015 by Colin Pantall
"Life is Elsewhere is a journal of my life, my family, my love, my friends, my travels, my sheer need to experience all that is about to disappear and so in a way I’m attempting to connect my own life with the world that I see with a hope to find my reality in it. Life is Elsewhere is a book of contradictions and of doubts and understandings and of laughter and forgetting in which I am trying to constantly question myself by simply documenting the broken fragments of my life which might seem completely disconnected to one another on their own. But I hope that in time I am able to piece together this wonderful jigsaw puzzle called life. And this journey will perhaps lead to reconciliation with my own life." Sohrab Hura
