Over the years there are few communities I shot with a passionate zeal.
One of them was the Hijras of India ,,I shot them as a documentary of their life style , and there were many layers of hijras , the mujra dancer hijras , the beggar hijras , the dance performers at marriages mostly Muslim marriages or Nikah..even circumcisions .The hijras begging in long distance trains as well as locals , the hijra bawas shamans exorcists and the eunuch children all locked up from public view . I also shot the hijra prostitutes of the Mumbai cages red light areas .
Hijras stalk me so I shoot them even now including the hijras and hijra impostors at traffic signals ,, I shot the Hijra Bollwood actresses , and the Hijra reigning queens .. and the old hags .
Next was these Whippers , I shot them their kids wives extensively and at my old workplace near Bandra Waterfield road all of them came to see me including the Hijras , beggar kids Naga Sadhus Rafaees and other exotic ethnicity ..
