Kristian Bertel

Kristian Bertel is a photographer that has a human interest in photographing people in India. He pursues Delhi's interlacing layers of history along narrow alleys and broad boulevards, brilliantly conveying its mix of mayhem and madness. Underlying his photography of Delhi is the legend of the djinns, fire-formed spirits that are said to assure the city's regeneration no matter how many times it is destroyed. These djinns are spirits said to be seen only after prolonged fasting and prayer and they are too integral to understanding the city.
