Untitled Street Portrait by Shirren Lim

Incredible India has always been on my bucket list for ever so long. Finally I made the trip to explore Northern India in late 2018 to early 2019. There were a few places I wanted to visit in Delhi, my first city stop. One of them was Chadni Chowk., We arrived there in the early morning. The fog hasn’t quite dissipated. The streets were just coming alive. We meandered in between all the small and main streets. This is one of the street portraits of the people in Chadni Chowk that I shot.

Shirren Lim is a Malaysian photographer living in Jakarta, Indonesia. She took up photography in 2009, as she thought it would be an interesting habit, later she discovered it as her true passion. Shirren loves portraiture best. With her photo-taking, she tries and do 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 is able to capture that one moment that could change the world. Her work has exhibited and also appeared in several web and printed magazines.
