Synopsis

This is a personal journey into neighborhood photo studios in Indian cities, a tour which discovers entire imaginary worlds in the smallest of spaces. People share their most personal photo fantasies, filled with romantic dreams and exuberant longings.Yet not everyone enjoys being photographed and not all photos are of happy moments. The cities in which these stories unfold themselves become backdrops, and their gritty urban reality - a counterpoint to the photo palaces.
