Delhi Photo Festival 2015: Mansi Thapliyal's "Aunty" series

Delhi Photo Festival

I started this project during my stay with Aunty. She was my landlady from 2009 to 2013 when I was in Delhi. Moving into that house with her, I was scared. She talked to herself, hallucinated and walked around in the night. It was a scattered place, stale, crumbling with unpredictably. 

Mansi Thapliyal worked with Reuters as a photojournalist covering important news events and also on stories highlighting gender-related issues. Mansi’s long-term projects tend to explore the nuance of intimate spaces.

It was a scattered place, stale, crumbling with unpredictably. There was a part of me that was nervous being around this woman but at the same time I was curious because her personality was so distinct, her madness was so intimate and yet so detached from the world.
