Award-winning photojournalist Danish Siddiqui was born in Iraq and brought up in Delhi but has been photographing Mumbai for Reuters since the summer of 2010.

His photos capture everyday life in the city of 20 million people – moments of calm in the chaos for slum-dwellers in India's wealthiest city.

He said: "While I enjoy covering news stories – from business to politics to sports – what I enjoy most is capturing the human face of a breaking story. I shoot for the common man who wants to see and feel a story from a place where he can't be present himself."
