“Photos can speak” – photos are not just emotional, they can also capture the time. A photo speaks of the time which was passed. Photos cannot be heard, they have to understand with eyes. The meaning can be understood only by looking at these framed photos of Pulitzer Prize-winning photographer Danish Siddiqui.
Reuters photojournalist Danish Siddiqui, the Pulitzer Prize winner, died in the line of duty. At the time, he was busy capturing clashes between Afghan security forces and the Taliban. According to a Reuters report, he has been stationed in Kandahar, Afghanistan, with Afghan security forces since the beginning of this week.
Danish once said his favorite thing to do is to capture the stillness of human faces at the moment of “breaking story”. Evidence of this is also found in his work. From India to North Korea, his camera captures humanitarian sentiments around the world. Danish captured photos of the earthquake in Nepal, violence in India, protests in Hong Kong. The images of the second wave of Covid-19 also come up in his camera.
