Hey there! First of all, pat yourself on the back. Really, I mean that. Because you’re a unique person who is seeking an equally unique travel experience. Kudos to that. And guess what? You just found one! No, it’s not my photowalk. It’s actually the Lodhi Art District itself. And here's a little secret. You can easily visit this place all by yourself! Here's why: 1. No tickets needed and open all day, round the year 2. Amongst the safest areas in Delhi 3. Friendly locals Honestly, it doesn’t matter if you book my tour or not. But please, do yourself a favour and make sure you visit the Lodhi Art District. However, if you do decide to explore this place with me, here's what you get in addition to everything mentioned so far. 1. A Curated Experience - We will take my hand-picked route that will take us through the most interesting pieces of work in 2 to 3 hours. An end-to-end walk with every piece takes well over 4 to 5 hours and can become quite daunting. 2. All Art, No BS - The Art is essentially what this neighbourhood is worth exploring for. I ensure that the entire time we spend together brings the focus down to just that. 3. An Artist’s Perspective - What better way to explore an art district than with an artist himself? I can assure you that my unique perspective will help you look at these works differently.
I'm an internationally-published Street & Documentary Photographer based in New Delhi, India. My journey towards what I do today started back in 2006 while living and working in Southern Africa. I took up photography back then as a hobby, to do something over the weekends. Gradually, my interest grew in it and I started looking at photography in a more serious manner. Taking the long way around, I've transitioned from a hobbyist to a professional over the last twelve years. Along the way, I've explored my craft, made mistakes, learnt from them and have had the time of my life which I wouldn't trade for anything else. I'm now at a stage where I'm keenly looking forward to sharing what I know with others and helping them grow as image-makers who love exploring our beautiful world visually!

Since this awesome experience needs us to walk around a fair bit, I'll be carrying some bottled water for you. Please feel…
For you to have an amazing experience, I have split it into 3 parts: 1. We start with the early works and the stories behind them. 2. We will then move onto stories of this neighbourhood as well as a unique graffiti wall that contains many deep and unfiltered messages. 3. Last but not the least, we move towards some of the newer works. P.S. - Throughout the walk, I'll reveal to you many hidden aspects that exist in both older and newer works!
