Taking old unwanted to digital cameras to Tahirpur leprosy colony in Delhi, I did two intensive workshops across two weeks, helping four young people who were born and brought up there to photograph their life and the life around them.

My idea was to collaborate with them to make a collage piece, so they could express some aspects of their life. All are children or grandchildren of those affected by leprosy. Though they have not themselves experienced the effects of leprosy on their body, they've all experienced the ramifications of having family effected, and having an association with the work 'leprosy'. The effect of leprosy reaches far beyond the individual.

The collages were exhibited on the Hindu temple in Tahirpur, with the help of the local community.

I couldn't have done this without the invaluable help of Arun Kumar, Santosh Rator, Phoebe Manova, and the four young people, Rishi, Jaya, Megha and Suraj (aged 17-19) who took part.
