adrianfisk_280These photographs are of a city caught between a dream and a nightmare. The images in Dilli Purani Dilli Naye (Delhi Old / Delhi New), made during 2009 and 2010, are experimental in nature – spur of the moment photographs made with a $200 film camera.

Delhi celebrates its 100th anniversary as the capital of India last year. This is a 360 degree view of my life in the Capital, an intimate portrait of my relationship with Delhi, a city going through a period of great change: a mega urban mass that uniquely juxtaposes beauty, opportunity and desire against frustration, darkness and inequality; a capital that trades idioms in fleeting moments, revealing the strange coexistence of those that have and those that do not; a city that is both purani and naye.
