Lockstitch Lives

About This Project

Lockstitch Lives brings the challenges associated with exclusionary urbanisation in Gurgaon, India to life.


Explore the neighborhoods of Dundahera, Kapashera, Sikanderpur Pahadi and Katarpuri. Venture into the homes where migrants live and listen to their stories as they describe the challenges they face in accessing clean water and sanitation facilities, navigating relationships with landlords and keeping themselves safe from violence at home and at work.


These experiences are deeply personal, unique to the Delhi, NCR —and are also reflective of the living and working conditions faced by migrant workers in megacities across the globe.
