Manu Thomas was the winner of the PUBLICATION submissions competition.

Manu works as a game programmer in Mumbai, India and started photography seriously in 2007 when he bought a camera to make reference photos for his watercolor painting...

"While searching for camera and photos, I happened to hear the term street photography for the first time and came to know about some amazing street photographers and saw some wonderful photos. I got hooked up to street photography very soon and it became my passion ever since. I want to continue doing painting, but photography is my biggest passion right now"

Manu mostly shoots in Mumbai but hopes one day to travel across India to document its life and culture. His favorite photographers are Raghubir Singh and Alex Webb.
