vineet vohra (@vineet_vohra ) tried his hand at wildlife and fashion photography early in his career. but it wasn’t long before he was drawn to “the uncertainty and surprise” of street photography. “the temporary connections i make in the street are more intense than what i found shooting wildlife,” says the photography teacher from new delhi. “for me, photography is not about sight. it’s about insight. my pictures are a dialogue, where i’m having a conversation with my audience, and with myself.”
a festival like #diwali, the annual hindu festival of lights, allows vineet a deeper-than-usual dive into his culture. “i’m not very religious,” he says, “but i am very spiritual. and as a photographer, anything having to do with light has huge significance in my life.” so diwali, especially, resonates with him. “you breathe for a while,” he says. “you think about the past year and moving into the next. there’s always negative energy around, even in good times, but the light during diwali just washes it away. the light cleanses the soul.”
check out today’s story to see what diwali was like for vineet. 📸

@___imiss__sh___ بی وفایی می کنی، هردم وفایت می کنم
عاشقانه جان و دل را هم فدایت می کنم
بی تو در هر لحظه می مانم به یاد و خاطرت
در خیالم بارها از نو صدایت می کنم
با وجود آنکه می دانم ز یادت رفته ام
در تمام روزها دائم هوایت می کنم
ای که بر لوح دلم با غصه خنجر میزنی
مرهم زخم دلم را ، خاک پایت می کنم
می کشی آخر مرا با این همه جور و جفا
من ولی هر شب مدارا با جفایت می کنم
همچنان نا مهربانی می کنی با قلب من
بهر عاشق کردن قلبت ، دعایت می کنم
گرچه می دانم نمی خواهی دگر عشق مرا
باز با عشق دل خود آشنایت می کنم
