Sub.ur.bia

IN PROGRESS: 2018
PHOTOGRAPHS & TEXT: ZAHIR ABBAS

sub.ur.bia ~ India, like many developing countries, is going through a rapid growth phase which includes unchecked urbanisation. One of the first group to get impacted are the animals who inhabit these places. Some of them die or relocate to other natural habitats, but many are trapped and get into a vicious cycle of survival. These are pictures of animals and birds hidden in those urban spaces. I have kept them grouped in threes (triptych) following the Indian Holy Trinity symbolising- Creation, Maintenance and Destruction.
