Featuring the works of 21 artists,The Tasveer Journal: Publication & Exhibition brings together many exciting projects that showcase the versatility of the medium and the various directions that photography has taken, is taking, and might be heading towards, in a contemporary moment. In an inverse process, the material exhibition stems from the primary publication — in doing so, it also functions as an exploration of the ways in which we respond to photography in the varying contexts of print, screen and gallery spaces.
Although there is a focus on newer talent, the publication and exhibition also ropes in some older bodies of work that together reshape our understanding of photography in South Asia, and the medium itself, through the ways in which they push the envelope with reference to content, form and methodology. The assortment of works seen in this selection, swing from straight documentary photographs to narrative retellings and highly conceptualised image practices, all evoking ultimately an idea of transformation — whether aesthetic, political, social or cultural in nature.
