In this image of the Indian capital Mumbai, the photography of Alicja Dobrucka captures the
changing landscape and unregulated construction in the city. The work is part of the photographic series ‘Life is on a New High, Mumbai 2013-15′. A large proportion of the high-rises under construction are intended as residential homes for the city’s wealthy. Therefore the contrast between the aspirations of the wealthy and the rest of the city become evident. Similarly, the title, which comes from estate agents’ slogans, highlights these aspirations – selling the dream.
