Looking into the black mirror
Project info

In our current world filled with black mirrors(phones), we humans have stopped using one of our best powers- the power of observation. Being a photographer has saved me from this mishap. Observation, I have learnt, is one of the most important requirements in the skill set of any photographer. Going out into the streets with my three eyes transforms me into a machine, which can not only observe(with my two anatomical eyes) but also document(with the photographer's third eye) it. Without getting into the debate of "Are mobile phones a boon or bane?", I present to you my observations from the pursuit of people watching on the streets; here is a series of people caught in their own world, amidst busy crowds and the hustle-bustle of the city. This was shot over a period of 5 days in the city of Istanbul, Turkey
