The India Vision Quest
The India Vision Quest is a remarkable achievement by eighteen young Indian photographers where they have presented a fusion of the old and new resulted in exquisite, multi-layered perspective of hybridized boomtown of Ahmedabad and Kolkata. Pre-partition neighbor hoods, depicting personal spaces; everyday construction site; extinction of single screen cinemas in India; vibrant night life of Kolkata, tradition versus modernity. The dialectical relationships point to the challenge and contradictions in India’s frenzied Landscape of change… Excerpt from the preface by Manik Katyal, Emaho Magazine
The workshops in Ahmedabad (Nov. 2013) and Kolkata (March 2014) were organised by DWIH, German House fpr Research and Innovation New Delhi. Special thanks to Annette Doll-Sellen and Alexander P. Hansen.

All You Need is Love!!!
Octogenarian Giridhar Nayak has traveled many places for work. His wife Rukuna Nayak, now 70 years old, is suffering from disability for last 10 years and the couple does not have money for regular treatment. Recently the condition has worsened further, which has made Rukuna completely immobile. Giridhar’s days are now spent mostly in looking after Rukuna. When alienation from relations is becoming a norm in our society, story of this couple of 50 years could be an exemplary. The strangest fact is despite all the regular hardship Giridhar cannot be found complaining about his situation even for a bit.
May be this is the strength of LOVE.

A brilliant experience came to an end. The last day of the ’Theatre of Real Life’ workshop with Mr Wolfgang Zurborn. A friendly mentor, lovely friends & some wired audience. It’s all about making new friend and tightening the bond with old once. The master of dance will be leaving this morning. But, it will be a memorable experience to all of us.

PARALLEL FOCUS - The Parallel Cities Time Out Delhi Photo Exhibition.
It’s no secret that despite their banal uniformity, malls are no longer just shopping centres, but social areas that are firmly integrated into Delhi’s cultural landscape. They’re not just places where you go for retail therapy, but for catching a rare documentary, cutting-edge art, talks, performances and of course, chit-chat and people-watching.
If you are in Delhi, Please drop in for our exhibition…
