Pul Ke Niche is the first book by Nick Sethi, an American photographer of Indian extraction. What is remarkable in Sethi's pictures of the children and families living under a freeway in New Delhi is how they boldly avoid the usual traps of photojournalism in depicting these types of subjects - there are no sad faces, begging hands, or juxtaposing of rich and poor to illicit sympathy for the misery of this community. Even though they are clearly desperate he portrays the energy and spirit of these kids and the "wrongness" of their predicament illustrated in a series of often surreal scenarios.
