Nikita Jajodia trains her lens on everything that calls out to her

Photography empowers one to tell a story, evoke an emotion, immortalize moments in time and much more. Nikita Jajodia has been expressing herself ever since she was a child. Now 18, the young photographer has decided to share her ruminations with the world. She exhibited her work ‘Weaving Stories Through my Extended Eye’ at Stainless Art Gallery in Okhla, recently. Hema Singh Rance, who has curated the show, describes her as “Young self-taught photographer who discovered for herself how to communicate with the world around.”

The collection was eclectic mix divided into five themes — people, African wildlife, abstract objects, nature and landscape. Nikita captured these randomly as she travelled around the world from United Kingdom to Kenya to Delhi and Haryana.

While a picture titled ‘on the rocks’ had a picture of a rock in sea, the frame titled ‘happy hour’ depicted the mouths of beer bottles with green light falling on them. In the section titled ‘People’, there was an image of people protesting against rape.

Images of poor people are appreciated this country which taken by influential peoples (full of resouces) !! but where is the help , nobody is intrested into the actual condition and why the pain occurs in picture ?? Is it artist's creation or it just a truth of poor people ??
i thnk everyone will give credit to artist !! I am not criticising someone, I am just want to uplift the poor condition of faces,whose pictures earn a lot but in actual they earn a bread in very difficult manner !!
