An Indian fashion photographer has released controversial images of an Indian woman surrounded by men on a bus, and fending off their advances.
The photo series “The Wrong Turn” was created by Mumbai photographer Raj Shetye.
Raj said he came up with the idea as a way of highlighting what Indian women go through on a daily basis on public transport.
But not everyone has reacted positively to the photo shoot. Many users have commented on Twitter, that Shetye is glamorising the serious issues of sexual assault of women in India.
Raj has insisted he’s not “glamorising” sexual harassment but raising the issue in the only way he knows how.
“Being a photographer, the only medium I can communicate in is photos. For me, its as simple as that. It’s art. Making movies, writing articles, making a poem – these are all ways of addressing the topic. Being a fashion photographer, this is what I can do best.”
