Upon hearing the word "homeless," many people may think that this photography series is going to be dirty and disheveled, but these Soham Gupta 'People of the Bridge' images are far from that. This photographic series follows the dark underground spaces of the Howrah Railway Station in Bengal, India.

Many underprivileged individuals reside amongst the hidden spaces of this railway station, and Soham Gupta set out to capture a rare look into the places they call home. Gupta is an acclaimed photographer from Calcutta with a passion for social documentary style photography.

White Zine is a frequently visited photographic website that summed up the astounding beauty of the Soham Gupta 'People of the Bridge' photographic series by saying it included "people weakened by time, by poverty... these photos give off an intense emotion. A magnificent work."
