A Slum called Hollywood
In these days of discord, disharmony, conflict and competition, finding affinity between two entities that are geographically far apart and no match to each other in socio-economic or cultural terms, is impossibility. But that is what this photo series did, and it went on to discover the impossible - A small slum area in the heart of the posh new city of Ahmedabad called HOLLYWOOD. The actual name of the area is Gulbhaitekra, but it has been popularly known as HOLLYWOOD for the last 4 decades for the reason that the women living here have a rustic beauty and glamour which is found to resemble that of Hollywood stars. Photographer KANNAGI KHANNA shares her images as she meets the enchanting women of Hollywood.
