New Delhi: A "cow mask" photography series uploaded on Instagram by 24-year-old photographer Sujatro Ghosh recently took the Internet by storm.

Shot entirely on a mobile phone, the series features a woman wearing a cow mask posing at different iconic landmarks in India.

Ghosh said he wanted to highlight "women's safety is a more serious concern than cow vigilantism", using the mask as a metaphor.

Mounting it in an art gallery would have restricted its reach. "I never wanted to showcase my photography within four walls," Ghosh, who now has more than 25,000 followers on social media, said.

"There is no doubt that Instagram has helped me to reach out to a much larger audience, making my project successful," he added.
