A tribute by Sutputra Radheye for Pulitzer Prize winning photojournalist, Danish Siddiqui, who died while covering a clash between Pakistan, Afghan security forces and Taliban on 16th July 2021. He is known to have said :”I shoot for the common man…”
For Danish Siddiqui “I shoot for the common man” in the future when no one will remember the crows anchoring inside the small boxes we call televisions Danish and his photographs will be discussed -- appreciated far beyond the boundaries of classrooms and exhibitions in streets, in protests in the songs of humanity and in the voices of people the streets will never forget the smile, the eyes and the camera that could speak write stories and shake the city inside every human where humanity lives
