Founder of DCP Expeditions, Dr Caesar Sengupta explains the special satisfaction of photographing on the streets, "Street photography is a very interesting genre. As you step outside the boundaries of the four walls and your comfort areas, with your camera; you can smell and experience the dirt on the roads, noise, stares and madness of rush on the streets. The world that you see is the background and the light available is all that you have and everything is beyond your control to set, yet it is a beautiful way to experience life, capturing the candid moments unfolding in front of you."

Sengupta adds, "Chor Bazaar offers abundant photographic opportunities to a street photographer. Starting from images of the vendors, food stalls, to people rushing home from work, kids playing, the modern life and the traditional life; literally every aspect of life in its real form from every possible angle, the movements and the moments — every dimension and aspect of life on the streets of Mumbai, feel and capture the moments of real life."
