Amit Bittoo Dey, a fashion photographer from Calcutta, India has currently done a photo series called as “Coy Mistress”. The theme captured the dual lifestyle of people from the LGBT community and how they have to live because of the pressures of society.
According to the Dey “I wanted to make a point about love having no bar on gender. It just happens and we cannot predict how or when it does,” Dey said.
