Well of Death

Stuntmen risk everything to ride on the 'Wall of Death'. I have been witnessing “WELL OF DEATH” from my childhood and since then i always wanted to document this through my lense. Three days with those daredevils, their stunts, stories and thrilling experiences is what i am sharing. Brave stuntmen NASIV, TASHOVAR, PARVEJ, SHAHIL & ASHOK have long been riding the near-vertical walls of India’s Well of Death. Holding hands, standing, sleeping, sitting sideways, passing papers/balloons/money are few to list stunts which they perform in this well. Performers up the danger of the event by grabbing money from the outstretched hand of spectators. I further wish to photograph all such festival shows happning accross India.
