In Picture: Danish Siddiqui’s Powerful And Unusual Glimpses

Award-winning Reuters photojournalist Danish Siddiqui who has been chronicling the critical moments- social and political issues, was killed on Friday while covering clashes between Afghanistan security forces and Taliban insurgents in Kandahar city.  

Siddiqui’s pictures showed the world how the second wave of the Covid-19 pandemic had ravaged India in April and May this year.  His lenses have also captured the tensions during protests against the Citizenship Amendment Act in 2020, the North East Delhi riots and the migrant workers’ exodus after imposing the countrywide Covid lockdown.   

In 2018, Siddiqui and his colleague Adnan Abidi had bagged the prestigious Pulitzer Prize for Feature Photography for images of the Rohingya refugee crisis. 

Here are some pictures from Siddique.
