Stray Dog in an Alleyway by Shirren Lim

There were a few places I wanted to visit in Delhi, my first stop city. We went to Chandni Chowk market area on a Sunday morning. The sreets weren’t crowded as most of the shops were closed on a Sunday. We were meandering along one of the quieter street when I chanced upon this street right down one alley. I made a few pictures of this scene. I like this one best with the head of the dog slightly turned catching the morning light.

Photographer: Shirren Lim (Jakarta, Indonesia) Registered
Born in Penang Island, Malaysia, in 1970, Shirren would find herself moving cities over the course of her life. She is now based in Jakarta, Indonesia. Shirren took up photography in 2009, as she thought it would be an interesting habit, later she discovered it as her true passion. Shirren loves portraitures best. To her, the expressions people wear are so beautiful, so telling, so uncovered in their sincerity. With her photo-taking, she tries and does justice to capture humanity in its many forms. Shirren’s work has been described as intense and earthy with her simple composition cutting to the heart of the subject matter. As a child, she had flipped through many of her father’s National Geographic magazines, but it was Steve McCurry’s 1984 “Afghan Girl” that she recall two decades later. That is what she wants to do with her life. She believes, someday, she can able to capture that one moment that could change the world. Her work has appeared in several web and printed magazines.
