“You’ve got to struggle against the pollution of intelligence in order to become an animal with very sharp instincts – a sort of intuitive medium – so that to photograph becomes a magical act, and slowly other more suggestive images begin to appear behind the visible image, for which the photographer cannot be held responsible.”

“I will love the light for it shows me the way, yet I will endure the darkness because it shows me the stars.”
(Og Mandino – American Essayist and Psychologist, 1923-1996)

This is the staircase of a building in Chandni Chowk where the post Office stands on the first floor.
Following the light takes you to another world where time is frozen.
People there forgot to step in our century, Old Delhi dwellers are real magicians defying with atmosphere, hours, elegance, literature and poetry…
