People living in slums pose for photographs lit by solar powered lantern, in Lucknow, Uttar Pradesh, India, November 9-11, 2018. All subjects bought the solar powered lantern from Pollinate Group an Australian company that sells products to people living in slum communities in India. Many slums do not have electricity affecting what people living there can do after dark. Solar powered lanterns address the lack of electricity enabling owners to work, cook and do homework after dark while also reducing the demand for coal powered electricity.
