I captured this image of a little girl on the offshores of the Indian ocean at Zanzibar in October 2019. After meeting her I came to know she has been hunting octopus on the Indian Ocean’s African coast to sustain her living every day by selling them fresh to local buyers, and now it has become her only means of occupation. Likewise , many girls there despite of going to school are the breadwinners of the family.

Hi!! I am Geetika Singh .. A Travel, Humanitarian and a Wildlife photographer born and brought up in the Nothern plains of India. As a photographer, my photographic portfolio spans the four corners of the globe and my favorite part of my travel photography is getting to meet people from different cultures and show a different unexplored world through my lens. I usually find my subjects by chance, while I travel. But, I'm particularly drawn to ancient traditions that are still surviving and evolving. Telling stories of people working in unique, challenging environments and those who live in a close bond with nature.Almost practicing from the last 8 years, the journey is unstoppable and my love for travel and wildlife has brought me to the Savanas of Africa. Hence my work allows me to travel to different countries of the world and my goal is simply to explore and save the extinct culture, species, nature, and wildlife.
