Tasveer exhibits at the 20th edition of international fine art photography fair Paris Photo, 10-13 November
Pan-Indian gallery Tasveer is exhibiting a selection of photographers and works at the 20th edition of Paris Photo, Grand Palais, from 10-13 November. The works highlight the fusion of photography and painting traditions in the early years of photography in India. With a lineup of artists, by the likes of Jyoti Bhatt, Karen Knorr, Flor Garduño, Rohit Chawla and Waswo X. Waswo, the group exhibition roughly explores the history of creative photographic manipulation in India.
Tasveer summarises the exhibition by writing "Observably, the works in this exhibit, aside from presenting insights into varied methods and creative processes in relation to photographic manipulation, may also be seen as loosely tracing a rich and complex relationship between photography and painting." More information about the exhibition can be found on their website.
Established in 2006, Tasveer began as the first pan-Indian gallery dedicated exclusively to photography, founded by Abhishek Poddar, Shalini Gupta and Naveen Kishore. While Tasveer’s principal gallery and head offices are based in Bangalore, each exhibition also travels to partner galleries around the country, including Delhi, Kolkatta, Mumbai and Ahmedabad.
