Photographs and photo essays basically freeze frame a reality, capture it and preserve it for future use. In the same way whatever types of hokk syun or hacche may be there, they basically freeze frame that vegetable. We are calling our photo essay section as Hokk Syun or Al Hachhe because it captures the essential meaning of a photograph or a photo essay. In this section we publish weekly or fortnightly photo essays by photographers who can tell visual stories.
This photo essay by Faisal Khan, the chronicler of Srinagar city’s violent streets – collects together some of the defining images of the protests led by the students and renders them in black and white for the purposes of situating them within the aesthetic of Wande Magazine.
