An Indian photographer has won a prestigious international photography contest with his image of a kebab seller from Kashmir. Debdatta Chakraborty was named the overall winner of Pink Lady Food Photographer of the Year 2022 for his photograph, titled Kebabiyana. Taken in an alleyway of Srinagar, Kashmir, the photograph shows a kebab seller firing up a charcoal oven to make wazwan kebabs.


“Khayyam Chowk is an alleyway in Sri Nagar, which is no different from other streets during daytime. But, in the evening, numerous charcoal ovens are lit up by vendors and the aroma and smoke of wazwan kebabs turn this street into a food-lover’s paradise,” reads the image description.


"There is so much to reassure us here - the beautifully captured billowing embrace of the smoke, the golden light, the subject's expression as he prepares the food for sharing,” said awards founder and director Caroline Kenyon for Chakraborty’s image.
