About the artwork

‘This is a city that sustains hundreds of migrants who have brought a part of themselves to this place. Even in its travails and tribulations, they see hope of sustenance and growth, in the hope of providing for a better life for future generations. Despite the political turbulence that the country faces, this place finds a way to float and sustain. This is a place of possibilities, apprehensions and turmoil and a boiling pot of people from all backgrounds. This is the idea of Delhi that I am interested in and am focusing on with this project.’

Indian photographer Saumya Khandelwal focuses on gender and environmental issues. She is a storyteller who uses photography – documentary photography, street photography and photojournalism – to build nuanced pictures of life in contemporary India. Based in Delhi and working independently, Khandelwhal is a contributing photographer for numerous international publications including TIME, National Geographic, The New York Times and the Hindustan Times. She was the recipient of the National Foundation of India Award 2017, and her work has been exhibited at Getty Images Gallery, London; Foreign Correspondents’ Club, Hong Kong; India Photo Festival, Hyderabad; and Goa Photo Festival.

Poster - Megacities, Delhi



Megacities is an ambitious project bringing the creative vision of ten leading street photographers into dialogue with the urban environment of ten global megacities – cities with a population of more than 10 million people.

With origins in the 1930s, and the advent of 35-millimetre film and handheld cameras, street photography came into its own as photographers became able to move freely and unobtrusively while taking photographs. The result was a dynamic genre of photography centred on the built environment and the behaviour, activity and experiences of urban populations. Street photography extends the descriptive and didactic capacities of photography to the realm of creative, interactive engagement and reflection, and in this project, offers a contemporary account of how we live.

The work of the ten photographers will feature in a dynamic, immersive environment, presenting a thought-provoking vision of the twenty-first century urban phenomenon – the megacity.
