’View India’ brings together recent works by nineteen young Indian photographers and lens based artists.
The book gives an updated version of what is going on in contemporary photography in India, and the works expose different aspects of life in India today.
The participants represent established genres: documentary, street and subjective photography, and in the more conceptually driven practices one finds a critical reflection on a post-photography condition.
The book includes interviews with the participants and with five key people in the photography scene in India. They reveal how it is to work as a photographer in India today, and share thoughts on collecting, publishing and curating.
Accompanies the exhibition ‘View India’ curated by Niclas Östlind & Niyatee Shinde, 14 Jun – 01 Oct 2019, Landskrona Museum, Sweden.
