18 Photographers Share Their Incredible Stories on Nature and Wildlife Photography
“Sometimes, all you need is a single moment or action to bring the photograph into its entirety.”
Varanasi is one of the oldest inhabited cities in India. It is also home to Rhesus Macaques, who have adapted to living alongside the city’s residents, even populating its temples. At the time that I shot the image, I was at a rooftop bar with a bunch of colleagues. While everyone was having a drink, I was wandering around, watching the activities taking place on the level below. I spent almost two hours observing the monkeys, hoping for something special to happen. It eventually did, when the mother lifted her child in the air, while the macaques tended to their young.

Animals are not found only in sanctuaries or in the wild. Several species have turned urban spaces into their homes. There are great stories to be told and documented here, in how these animals live in these spaces and coexist with humans.
