In the photographer's words: "The Jama Masjid Mosque in Delhi is a photographer's paradise, with intricately patterned tiles, symmetrical domes and cusped arches, beautiful earth-toned stonework, and colorfully dressed visitors vying for your lens' attention. But if you pay the 50 rupees to climb the south minaret, you are rewarded with the most compelling view— outward. The city stretches away in a seemingly endless swarm of buildings whose straight lines contrast the curved gratework of the minaret window."
