Dean John D'Souza
At 26, Dean John D’souza has a pretty clear vision of what he wants to do with his life—first and foremost, be enveloped in things he loves. Currently, Dean is working on two projects, both of which are rooted in the things he loves most. In his hostel room, with a couple of friends, during his stay in Poona from 2010 to 2013, Dean conjured up his first project, The Gourdsmith. In it, he makes and sells handmade projects made from gourds called the Gudgudi, which is a device used to smoke Sheesha flavour—a flavour inspired by a traditional tribal smoking device in India. His second project, Bombay50, is based on a host of ideas that revolve around vintage motorcycles and scooters. Dean’s spread was taken while he was in Poona. All of the images, he attests, are "super important to [him] for various reasons." Included are his regular stomping grounds, and just things he found fascinating and worthy of exploring. And that’s really the best we could ask for since, as Dean explained, the ultimate source of his success has been his unique and winsome outlook: "I guess you could say that people appreciate my ideas a lot."
