These powerful stories are a reminder to the question- “what will I be when I grow up”

written by Radhika Sharma April 25, 2017

Wasn’t this the first question asked in school? “What do you want to be when you grow up?”. My answer always used to be an astronaut. All of us have childhood dreams, sadly not all us have the privilege of taking it into adulthood.

In a beautiful photoseries, Mumbai-based student Deeksha Rathore embarked upon a project called “Dreamcatcher,” a photo series of 12 diptychs highlighting the contrast between people’s current careers and their childhood dream jobs.

Check them out.
