Waswo, Serena Chopra and Rohit Chawla. Also part of the presentation is a selection of still life flowers by Bas Meeuws from his series produced in India that has never been seen before.

Tasveer at the Kochi-Muziris Biennale until 29th March

 

In a Kochi-Muziris Biennale Collateral event, Tasveer is pleased to be showcasing a selection of works from Karen Knorr’s critically acclaimed series: India Song

 

Karen Knorr blurs the lines between reality and illusion in India Song by inserting animals into architectural spaces and heritage sites. This unexpected juxtaposition playfully subverts cultural spaces and punctures meaning traditionally associated with them, while posing questions about power, gender, colonialism and cultural appropriation through allegory. 

 

The exhibition is on view at Passage Malabar in Fort Kochi until 29th March 2017.

The Tasveer Journal

#19 New Lands

 

The Tasveer Journal launches a new issue: #19 New Lands that looks at photographers who are changing the landscape of travel photography in South Asia

 

#19 New Lands explores places that have rarely been captured on film before and are rarely open to outsiders. So far, the issue has looked at Serena Chopra’s Bhutan Echoes–which is also a new exhibition and publication by Tasveer; Clarisse d’Arcimoles’ From Burma to Myanmar: Portraits of Change and Kishor Sharma’s Living in the Mist: The Last Nomads of Nepal.

Waswo X. Waswo: Photowallah at FOCUS Photography Festival

 

Tasveer is pleased to announce that Waswo X. Waswo: Photowalalh will be on view at TARQ in Mumbai as part of the FOCUS Photography Festival from 9th to 23rd March

 

Photowallah features a selection of Waswo X. Waswo’s hand-coloured studio portraits–produced in collaboration with Rajesh Soni–that playfully examine the ethnographic photograph-as-document that is linked to the colonial era, as well as the fantasy-inspired make-believe that emanated from traditional Indian portrait studios in the late 19th and 20th centuries.
