A room to live in

In a way, the environment that we create around ourselves defines us. This series of photographs explores how living rooms play a defining role in Delhi homes — whether used to welcome guests or to get the family together, this space means so many different things to different people. For some it’s just a single room that the family calls home, for others it’s a lavish extra space; some living rooms are all about display, showcasing only a few special things, others have within them everything that’s essential to the family that lives there. Spacious or cramped, stuffed with religious artifacts, paintings or crystal knock-knacks, it’s one of the most important spaces of any home. And each tells its own little story.
