Connaught Place : Unfocussed

Connaught Place, New Delhi, is one of most iconic marketplaces in India. Visually, it’s a blend of colonial architecture characterised by arches, pillars and corridors interspersed with shops, restaurants, signages, decorative lighting, kiosks and of course, people! Connaught Place used to be my favourite haunt and much like the Pink City : Unfocussed series, a series of unfocussed photographs of Connaught Place was attempted, which aimed to capture the flavour of this unique marketplace. Taken in 2007, these images are available as affordable prints on archival paper.
