I am writing this post from New Delhi, the capital of India. The city at the moment is living a dream – a dream of having a large-scale photo festival in India.
The inaugural edition of the biennial Delhi Photo Festival (15th to 28th October 2011) is currently on at the India Habitat Centre. It has brought works from photographers across India and also from other parts of the world. The organisers of the festival have done a commendable job in hosting a festival of this size and magnitude. Hats off to Prashant Panjiar and Dinesh Khanna, the two photographers who are behind the making of this festival. Cheers!!
My work, Fistful of Dreams, is also being shown as part of the festival. A digital slideshow of Fistful of Dreams opened to public on the evening of 16th October 2011. It is part of a group exhibit that is on at the Visual Arts Gallery & Open Palm Court of the India Habitat Centre. The slideshow will loop till the end of the festival.
The compelte list of photographers whose works are being shown at the Visual Arts Gallery are : Martin Bagren, Zishaan Akbar Latif, Ana Galan, Sean lee, Sudharak Olwe, Sanjeev Saith, Sam Harris, Kanu Gandhi, Raj Lalwani, Sankar Sarkar, Atul Loke, Sameer Tawde, Katrin Koenning, Christopher Taylor, Amit Chakravarty and Nishant Ratnakar (Your’s truly!).
Below, I share a mobile phone video showing the audience at the Visual Arts Gallery watching the digital projection of Fistful of dreams on the opening night of the show. If you are in New Delhi, then please do drop in to India Habitat Centre and be part of the photo festival.
Works of over 80 artists from India and abroad are being exhibited during the festival. The festival also include many activities like workshops, seminars, panel discussions, portfolio reviews and so on. The complete list of events can be found at the festival website.
