Candid Camera: Shared Spaces

An expression so captivating, it’s tough to imagine it comes from a pavement-dweller’s relationship with her pets

Location Mumbai
Moving image “Shobha stays on the footpath before the Famous Studious lane in Mahalaxmi. When I asked her about the dogs, she defensively responded, ‘Yeh mere hain. Maine inko paala hai. (These dogs are mine. I’ve raised them.)’ She goes on to tell me that a few years ago she found two puppies in a box and immediately took a liking to them. Now these puppies have grown up and have had a litter and she could not be happier.
Photographer Anurag Banerjee did his Bachelor of Media Studies from Symbiosis Institute of Media and Communication (UG), Pune. After, he moved to Bombay and joined Time Out Mumbai as a photographer. Earlier this year, he had a digital exhibition at the NCPA of a series of photographs titled Gone Away on the author Siddharth Dhanvant Shanghvi’s life in Goa.
