Delhi in Time Lapse

India’s capital of Delhi is populated with approximately 17 million people. It is a sprawling and bustling urban center with a population density of 11,300 per square kilometer. Despite a struggling infrastructure that varies from stunning architecture & World Heritage sites to dilapidated buildings and refuse dumped along the roads, there is an efficiency to the daily activities. This is beautifully illustrated by the time-lapse photography of Jack Fisher.

“A boy writes on a blackboard painted onto the wall of a building, at a free school under a metro rail bridge, in New Delhi, India.

The school was founded by Rajesh Kumar Sharma, who was unable to complete his own college education, because of financial difficulties. Every day he takes two hours out to teach children of local laborers, while his brother replaces him at his general store.

Together with an assistant, Laxmi Chandra, Sharma gives lessons to around 45 children daily, having persuaded their families to free them from working to earn money.”
