Inspired by William Dalrymple’s novel City of Djinn, photographer and researcher Darragh Mason Field went to Delhi to discover more. He visited three sites: the ruins at Feroz Shah Kotla, the busy shrine of Nizzamuddin in old Delhi and the hidden saints shrine of Khwaja Moluddin Chichi.  Delhi is a city with many faces, a city of extremes. It became clear that amongst the busy Metro stops, milling traffic, the Djinn were still very much part of the cities culture.
