Mumbai

India. Mumbai Bombay, Maharashtra. First impressions and journey into the outskirts of Mumbai, an area called Vangani, to document the work of local news maker Amul Lalzare, who takes the concerns of his neighbourhood and translates them into short news items for later dissemination throughout Video Volunteers, an International organisation for the support and distribution of such individuals. Vangani is a small village roughly a 60 minute train ride from Mumbai and has a community of visual impaired. Until recently there was no bridge over the railway tracks which would allow people to cross the tracks, however half a bridge was constructed and allows villagers to cross from one side to the railways station but not across the tracks entirely.
