Tanmoy Nayak in his photo essay ‘Parcel Colony’ depicts a not often seen slice of Indian life. Morning or night, sunshine or rain the parcel loaders of the Indian Railways at Howrah are captured in various freeze frames of motion. Pushing, grunting, straining, they struggle with huge loads that need to be loaded onto trains for transport across the country. The photographer does not romanticize these workers. As an observer of their routine life, his photos instead manage to lend a certain dignity to their work.
