Capturing The Women Of India, Photographer Anindito Mukherjee Is Presenting The Real Story Behind The Lens

Women have forever been projected as an object to be seen for their beauty, grace, and softness. The ones who are blessed with these three criteria are often captured by the camera lens of a photographer, shunning the rest as a story no one would like to hear. But there are some who are enamored by the real story behind the lens and strive to introduce the masses to the true image of a woman. Documentary photographer Anindito Mukherjee is one such example.

If you were to scroll through his impressive photographs on Instagram, you will be introduced to beautiful pictures of elderly women in India who are rarely the center of attention in mainstream photography.

Here are some of the gems from his page:
