‘Kansar – Siddesh : The Copper Foundryman’ by Pramit V Rao

Pramit, a student from the 2nd year of The One School Goa 3 Year Integrated Photography Program produced a body of work on a coppersmith in Goa during his 3rd semester for a Visual Storytelling assignment.

Goa is known for its famed copper and brassware, a traditional craft that relies on craftsmen with years of experience and practice. One such man is a veteran ‘Kansar’ or coppersmith Siddesh Kamli, who hails from Belgaum, Karnataka who moved to Goa and mastered his craft for over three decades. This visual story depicts a day in the life of the skilled artisan, who also happens to be blessed with an immaculate beard.
