Exhibition in Delhi at Exhibit 320 | 'Postcards from the Interior'

Exhibition in Delhi at Exhibit 320 | 'Postcards from the Interior' | art move | Scoop.it

"Indigenous Americans once believed that when a photograph was taken, it stole a piece of the person’s soul. Similar to mirrors, which many cultures regarded as reservoirs of our ‘selves’ and hence felt, if broken, would bring ill luck and disquiet. These beliefs function as powerful metaphors for how images define us—our physical borders, the individual arrangement of our features, and our identity in terms of our differences with others. Recently, Alex Parker, a London-based amateur photographer, took pictures of himself standing with one other person or another—a friend, acquaintance or stranger. He titled the series Me. Tanvi Mishra, a Delhi-based freelance photographer and debut curator, has orchestrated a similarly intimate exhibition, one that gazes at the lives of others, whether it be the artist or his or her subject.A startlingly talented group of photographers explores the theme of self and identity through an intensely personal lens"

Painted Photographs: Coloured Portraiture in India, from The Alkazi Collection of Photography

Painted Photographs: Coloured Portraiture in India, from The Alkazi Collection of Photography | art move | Scoop.it

As the venerable Ebrahim Alkazi himself says in the Foreword: “Indian Photographic studios developed their own karkhanas (artists’ ateliers and workshops) much in the manner of the traditional Mughal and regional schools of painting. They adopted particular styles and devised distinctive provincial traits and palettes. Some catered to royal patrons whose custom set them distinctly apart; others found a steady lucrative business in serving the needs of the burgeoning and prosperous mercantile and professional classes. With its fantastic painted backdrops of verdant landscapes, royal gardens, rearing stallions, tempestuous oceans and secret boudoirs, this unique mode of photography passed into the accepted aesthetic traditions of Indian life and has survived as one of its most delightful rituals.”

Ghat - A Pinhole Movie Project

Ghat - A Pinhole Movie Project | art move | Scoop.it

Stenop.es is an experimental, visual project by Paris-based photographers and cameramen, Romain Alary and Antoine Levi that turns an entire apartment room into a pinhole camera.

 

The idea behind Stenop.es: A Pinhole Movie Project is to project the outside world onto the inside and merge the two landscapes. This is achieved by, ‘darkening an entire apartment and blocking out all the light from the outside except for the small amount let through the pinholes’. The effect created is a collage of projected images, turned upside down on to the apartment walls, creating a kind of mesh of ordinary household objects with the edifices and landforms outside.

 

When asked about the conception of the project Antonie and Romain said that, they had always been interested in using antique techniques on digital support. Which is why, in 2008 they spent a year travelling from Paris to Tokyo, where they captured a lot of pictures and films with cameras like the Lomo LC-A, Leica and 5d. But it was in a rented room in Pushkar, India, that their meanderings finally came to an end and gave birth to an idea. The room, that was located in an ancient palace that overlooked a sacred lake, had a tiny hole in the window pane, which in the morning projected the moving forms of the landscape outside, on the ceiling. The filmmakers realized that using this technique they could turn this room into a nice pinhole project.

 

Since the inception of the project they have created two films, one as mentioned above in Pushkar, India called Ghat, and the other one shot in Paris, which remains untitled.

Their first film, Ghat was a finalist in 2011’s short films contest called, India is.
