This is the first ever wall art in Kolkata which focuses entirely on the theme of Bengali Wedding. A Bengali Wedding is something which includes various things to complete a full wedding ceremony and every thing is drawn to the walls of the slum.This is a slum of Behala where each and every wall is painted on the theme of Bengali Wedding.
Each and every subtle thing of the Bengali wedding ceremony is portrayed by the walls of this slum area. People of this area are very happy with this innovative initiative. Children of that particular area are very joyous with the graffiti, they used to play all the time with that wall art. Here are the pictures of that slum area and their children which has entirely been changed now after graffiti.
About Dipanjan Chakraborty
I am Dipanjan Chakrborty. I am Kolkata based street and documentary photographer. I have been documenting Kolkata for the last few years. As a photographer, my perspective remains to explore street photography as a key to reach the common people and their lives. I love to tell stories through my lens.
Every frame tells a story but when we create a story within a frame, it makes the frame more beautiful. After being a street and documentary photographer my course of life has entirely changed. I have started photography from my childhood. But I have had a craze for photography since my childhood, whenever I could get a mobile or camera from anyone I would always try to capture my surrounding people and their daily life.
I love to see photos daily, in social media I used to watch various kinds of pictures from different countries and different photographers that helped me to increase my knowledge. When I make a plan to go out for a shoot at first I used to make research on that particular subject or project on which I am going to do my work, then I used to make a plan on that particular place and time when my shoot takes place, because time is more important in street photography. But sometimes when I go out with my equipment I capture various candid moments on the street I am using a Sony A6000 mirrorless camera right now. I have used a DSLR earlier but mirrorless is giving me such a great output, especially in low light mirrorless is a revolution.
