The portraits of the Unorganised Workers were conceptualised to give the campaign a human face, show and connect the participants with the brand.
Background: Prevailing social security benefits such as health insurance in India are restricted to workers in the formal sector. However, about 93% of the entire workforce accounting for close to 400 Million people works in the informal sector. The overwhelming majority of these unorganised workers do not have access to adequate and reliable social security.
For the photo bank of GIZ and for the brand campaign for Single-Window-Service, Social Security for Unorganised Workers.
A photo essay on children inside and outside of gated communities in Bangalore. Children inside gated communities and children “on the other side of the wall” never intermingle with each other. Migrant construction worker and their children live often in front of the gated communities in tin sheet huts, while construction work is still going on. Within the direct neighbourhood children are often only seperated by a wall: on one side they are splashing in pools, on the other side children don’t have access to water and other basic facilities like toilets or bathrooms. Older sisters and brothers watch younger siblings, while both parents are working on the construction site, and have no access to education. The third group of children lives in the peri-urban, a fast changing, hybrid landscape of fragmented urban and rural characteristic.
