Park Ballads

Park Ballads, photo essay by Akib Abdullah

Parks are not about the places, it’s about the people. The people, their happiness, their emotions, connections. Intimacy finds them amidst all the trouble and isolation. A little bit of laughter, tiny piece of life; that is what makes the parks memorable. And often inseparable from the very idea of being.

Through the rush and the hustle, from the running and tiresome daily machine-like routine, selling out their every part of liveliness and self the people are somewhat incapable of the luxury called ‘being free’. Happiness is a burden, life is overrated. Amidst all these the park is the place where you feel or be felt. (Akib Abdullah)
