2015 NEEL DONGRE GRANTS FOR EXCELLENCE IN PHOTOGRAPHY
In this photographic exhibition, “Bajaatey Raho”, the camera’s gaze turns to the men who make up the wedding band; from north to south, west to east, it looks within their lives in search of answers to these questions even as it asks others. The gaze is both deeply empathetic as well insightful. Perhaps all the questions cannot be answered; and perhaps many will be, through the human nuances and shades captured by the camera.
A collaborative photographic project by six photographers presenting different interpretations of bandwallas/musicians through distinctive artistic and documentary styles.
