Image Of Kebab Seller From Kashmir Wins International Food Photo Contest

The winners of the Pink Lady Food Photographer of the Year 2022 Competition were announced at a ceremony streamed online

Indian photographer Debdatta Chakraborty was named the winner of the Pink Lady Food Photographer of the Year 2022 for an image of a street vendor in Srinagar, Kashmir.

In the image titled Kebabiyana, the vendor is seen working at a smoke-filled food joint. He’s engulfed by smoke as he tends to what looks like meat kebabs.

The photo was shot at Srinagar’s Khayyam Chowk, an alleyway that looks like any other street during the day. However, in the evening, it turns into a hub of activity as vendors light multiple charcoal ovens, and the aroma and smoke of wazwan kebabs from the grills transform this street into a foodie’s paradise.

Caroline Kenyon, the founder and director of Pink Lady Food Photographer of the Year, said the winning photograph had “beautifully captured billowing embrace of the smoke, the golden light, the subject’s expression as he prepares the food for sharing”.

“Sparks fly from the skewers, whose roasting we can almost smell, we imagine the warm, delicious aroma. This image, gentle but powerful, nourishes our soul,” added Ms Kenyon.
