Dialects Of Silence Delhi Under Lockdown
Dialects of Silence is one photographers quest to seek Delhis deserted soul during four months of the
lockdown as a pandemic ravaged the world. Look closer. We see a woman daring out in the city she calls home, capturing the haunting beauty of its historic buildings,
sharing the grief of its Covid victims, and celebrating its vitality and courage.
She took thousands of photographs and Dialects of Silence is born out of her intimate conversations with one
of the worlds greatest cities during those terrifying moments.
