Karan Kapoor: Time & Tide on view in Mumbai at TARQ
Tasveer is delighted to present for the first time in India, an exhibition of limited edition silver gelatin prints by Karan Kapoor
Time & Tide showcases some of Karan Kapoor’s earliest work that focuses on people and places that have either been lost to history, or changed beyond recognition. The first series, shot in the 1980’s, documents the ageing Anglo-Indian community while the second series, taken in the 1990’s, captures the last of ‘Portuguese Goa’. Alongside the exhibition, Tasveer will publish a new photo book with text by William Dalrymple and Felicity Kendal.
The exhibition will be on view at TARQ from 23rd September to 16th October 2016. For more information, please visit the Exhibitions page.

The Tasveer Journal features Ken Hermann
The Tasveer Journal takes a look at Ken Hermann’s intriguing series of portraits ‘Flower Man’ of flower sellers from the Malik Flower Market in Kolkata
Ken Hermann questions conventional ideas of masculinity in ‘Flower Man’, making a larger point about socially constructed gender stereotypes, and turning them on their head—with men who stand largely self-assured, confident and proud, rarely even smiling, sometimes gazing intensely into the lens, even while gently clutching a bundle of flowers to their chest.
Explore ‘Flower Man’ on the Tasveer Journal. Happy Reading!

#18 Forms of Discrimination
A new issue of the Tasveer Journal launches with an excerpt an essay by Caroline Bertram for Mahesh Shantaram’s The African Portraits
This issue of the Tasveer Journal will look at photographic works that explore the complex relationships between identity, discrimination, perception and representation. Bangalore-based photographer Mahesh Shantaram sheds light on this topic through his series, The African Portraits, of intimate portraits of Africans living in India. Furthermore, the series may contribute to changing the discourse about the underlying racisms that persist in Indian society.
