Convergence – A Panorama of Photography’s French Connections in India

An exclusive photography exhibition presenting works of prominent French photographers who have traveled & lived in India from the mid-nineteenth-century to the 1970s.

How did French as well as Indian photographers perceive India over two & a half centuries of its history? In this exhibition, different visions of French as well as Indian artists who travelled or lived in India from the mid-19th century to the 1970s will be showcased through the medium of photography.

Among all these intrepid travellers, writers, journalists, photographers and artists, discover the works of notable French photographers such as Louis Rousselet (who came to India in the mid-nineteenth-century), Marc Riboud (a celebrated French photojournalist who travelled all around Asia in the 50s), and many other works of modern European Masters such as Denis Brihat, Paul Almasy, Michel Séméniako, who took exploratory trips to  India from the 1950s onwards until the 1970s like the French-born American photographer Bernard Pierre Wolff.
