Alone in the Crowd

A Street Fine Art Photo Series

A city is made by its people and then the people are made by the will and whimsies of the city collectively.

This is Kolkata. My city, my homeland. It is from where I have received love and nutrition to be what I am today. But there is a side to it which is not pleasant.

It is a woman’s nightmare to enter into a crowded place. In India, she will not be allowed to go through it without being raped by the very sight of people.

However, as days passed, by the essence of survivor’s instinct, women have now learnt to ignore such behaviour as if it never happened.

This leads to the feeling of being powerful, yet alone.

This the theme of this project. When I spoke to my model (Medha Bhattacharya), she readily worked out of her genre in the interest with subject.
