Kumbharwada Streets

Conquer your fear of photographing strangers!

Join us for yet another interesting street photography walk as we interact with the earthy souls of Kumbharwada, Dharavi, a community of potters and artisans that form a small scale industry on its own.
This photowalk focuses on the lives of these potters and their routine. The photowalk will take you into the alleys where some potters still make pots using the traditional wheel while most of them have moved on to electrical wheels.
Mentor Tejas will guide you through the setup and explain appreciation of light and getting outstanding images in these environment. Expect to learn to blend into the atmosphere and get some candid shots of artisans at work.
