Photo London 2015









Tasveer is delighted to announce its participation in Photo London 2015 — a major international photography event that will take place at Somerset House, in the heart of London, between the 21st and 24th of May 2015. 

At the inaugural edition of Photo London, we are pleased to be showcasing the works of artists Christopher Taylor, Derry Moore, Karen Knorr, Jyoti Bhatt, Ram Shergill and Sebastian Cortés. In addition, the Tasveer booth at E5 will preview a selection of vintage prints of royal women from erstwhile princely India, from an ongoing project and upcoming exhibition at the gallery in collaboration with MAP (Museum of Art & Photography).

One of the narrative elements of the exhibit, in keeping with the specific platform of Photo London, is to interrogate the nature of Indo-British relations — and the images on display, from the vintage photographs to contemporary work engage with this to varying degrees and through differing modes. While the intersections between the photographers remain fluid, they ground a movement away from exoticised representations popular in the West in the past, and produce a nuanced and complex rendering of India’s multiple realities.

The featured photographers further present a range of transitions undergone by the medium over time — from vintage Jyoti Bhatt prints that are representative of 20th century classical ‘documentary’ photography on one end of the spectrum, to Karen Knorr’s manipulated images that are squarely illustrative of contemporary photographic trends on the other.
