Beschrijving

‘As a large, multilingual subcontinent, India has always relied on images to maintain a cohesive whole across myriad subcultures, regions, castes and languages. The introduction of photomechanical imaging in the nineteenth century enabled the rapid reproduction and dissemination of both spiritual and scientific ideals. Photography for most of its history was too expensive and technical, and was left in the hands of ‘experts’—until the birth of digital technologies. The book addresses the legacy of the last twenty years, a period when photography and moving image media have been consistently included within critical exhibitions of fine art.’
(Sunil Gupta, Lead Curator)
