    A Tale of Two Cities

    A colony of Zoanthids glows under an ultraviolet flashlight, against the backdrop of the Mumbai city skyline. Zoanthids are an order of cnidarians, similar to corals and commonly found in coral reefs. They can be seen on Mumbai’s rocky shores during low tide. I was shooting one such Zoanthid colony when I discovered that they glow brilliantly under UV light. This long exposure shot brings together two sides of the city of Mumbai: the bustling, ever-expanding metropolis and the wildlife haven that hides in plain sight. Mumbai’s marine life is under constant threat as these forgotten treasures continue to be ignored in favour of unsustainable urbanisation.
