Event Description : "Pictorialist Photography in Bombay at the Turn of the Century" A Public Lecture by Jyotindra Jain

While early photography in India served the colonial agenda of documenting its people, flora and fauna, archaeological heritage and scenic beauty, by the turn of the century a global, self-consciously modernist approach foregrounded aesthetic values, such as the imagination, subjectivity, tonality and composition, allowing photography to stake a claim to the category of art, within a mulifaceted movement called Pictorialism.

Western Pictorialism had strong echoes in Bombay between the 1890s and 1930s. Besides adding to what is well-known about the photography of Shapoor N. 
Bhedwar, this illustrated talk will bring into focus the work of at least five other post-Bhedwar ‘Bombay Pictorialists’, who legitimized the medium as an “art form” predicated
upon the aesthetics of fantasy and performativity.

Discussant : Rahab Allana
