Nemai Ghosh was Satyajit Ray’s photographer from 1968 until Ray’s death in 1992. Ray described him as ‘a sort of Boswell working with a camera rather than a pen’. His many books include Satyajit Ray at 70 (1991) with a foreword by Henri Cartier-Bresson, Satyajit Ray: A Vision of Cinema (2005) in collaboration with Andrew Robinson, Manik-Da: Memories of Satyajit Ray (2011) and Satyajit Ray and Beyond (2013), published by DAG.
His photographs have been widely exhibited in India and abroad and are in the permanent collection of India’s National Gallery of Modern Art. He was awarded the Padma Shri by the Indian government in 2010.
