Here and elsewhere

Sridhar Balasubramanian 

 

"Chennai, the capital of Tamil Nadu and one of the oldest municipal corporations in India has a large migrant population with laborers living in slums and on the streets. These migrant laborers are subjected to economic and physical exploitation by their employers and there are now laws to prevent this from happening. The lives and future of these people have been in a perpetual state of crisis. The present and future city construction is based on the migrant worker’s sweat. My photo story documents their life in our city, their living conditions and lack of work rights. "
