I am not an avid fan of street photography. I agree that the hustle bustle of a street captures the eye of a photographer more. But for me I like how certain focus of a object makes the difference or how the light plays in the dark alleys.
The Largest slum of India is a playground of such contradictions and is referred as large based solely on the occupancy and the area it occupies. But if you actually traverse within the intricate network of Dharavi, you might not consider the notion of gradeur. In fact, you just might prevail yourself from meandering. But the narrow streets of Dharavi can be described as a playground for photographers – both professionals and amateurs.
These are two of my favorite pictures taken by me that captures the essence of street for me.
