Confined in my own house with little or no flexibility of movement due to govt regulations and very limited scope of photography, I decided to shoot this portfolio of images. I am indebted to these cute models who are my near relations and some local children. I have observed them closely during this ongoing lock-down period and in my work I have tried to document their changing lifestyle. Roof tops have now replaced their favourite playgrounds and windows are the newest hotspots in the quarantine period. Masked faces find fancy in the twirls and whirls of their flowing gowns. The bad boys are not bad enough because they are nosedived into their online classes streaming through the Net.
A plethora of diverse narratives and feelings - I have tried to include in these images. This is going to be a full length work that will accommodate many other images in the future.
