Pul Ke Niche

$27.00
Pul Ke Niche is the first book by Nick Sethi, an American photographer of Indian extraction. What is remarkable in Sethi’s pictures of the children and families living under a freeway in New Delhi is how they boldly avoid the usual traps of photojournalism in depicting poverty – there are no sad faces, begging hands, or juxtaposing of rich and poor to illicit sympathy. Even though they are desperate, blowing-the-lid off poverty in India is clearly not Sethi's objective, instead he portrays of the “wrongness” of their predicament, and their humor despite this, illustrated in a series of often surreal scenarios.
