Dispatch from Delhi

A photo essay from last year’s visit to Delhi: grand centuries-old structures, striking contrasts between old and new, interesting calibrations of refinement. It is apparent heritage structures are well inserted into the rhythms of everyday life. Most unlike a few places where they remain static, rarely used or engaged, and only comes alive with the arrival of tourists.
