Photography exhibition ‘Panchtattvas: The Road Ahead’ begins

Tribune News Service

New Delhi, November 30

Kerala’s ponds are on the verge of extinction, migration in Sunderbans that leaves behind little children learning to fend for themselves, the mighty Ganga gasping for breath due to pollution, and the all-encompassing Mother Earth!

These are the four different stories captured by four young photographers with one final result – a photography exhibition that promises to bring into sharp focus, the pertinent issue of sustainable development.

Being held as the grand finale of Habitat Photosphere, the year-long photography festival initiated by India Habitat Centre and curated by art historian Dr Alka Pande, the exhibition titled “Panchtattvas: The Road Ahead”, will be held at India Habitat Centre, here from December 1 till December 31.

Harikrishna Katragadda, Monica Tiwari, Shraddha Borawake and KR Sunil, all awardees of the prestigious photosphere award, will be showing photographs taken over a period of eight months, each having been mentored in this creative process by renowned, practicing photographers like Parthiv Shah, Bandeep Singh, Prabir Purkayastha and Aditya Arya, respectively.

The four mentors themselves will be showing their own photographic work responding to that of their mentees, while Dr Pande will be presenting an animation work on the Ganga.

Adding to the multi-dimensionality of the event, artist Ashim Ghosh will have a light-based installation titled Illume on view, while Swiss artist Ursula Biemann will be showing a video work called Deep Weather.

In addition, at the Jor Bagh Metro station, authors Kavita Singh Kale and Santosh Kale will be showing images from their graphic novel project called “17 Seen Unseen” that was published for young adults.
