By © Ingrid Hendriksen Photography | Photo Journalism, Travel Hardcover Photo Book in a Matte Printed cover with 111 Satin 170g pages


Description Description

The last months of Kathputli, is a photographic essay, about the last months of an artist colony/slum in New Delhi, home to several generations of traditional folk artists, settled here more than 4 decades ago.
In 2009 the New Delhi government sold Kathputli to developers, and in 2014 only around 500 families out of the estimated 3,000 moved to transit camps, and the rest decided to stay.
For the past few years families have been under constant threat of eviction, living its last day on stage on October 2017 , when 400 homes were razed to the ground in a span of a few hours, only 6 months after my visit.
