Mumbai Local: Stories From Behind the Lens
A powerful photograph says so much. It captures a fleeting second, a story, an experience in time. Speaking on even after the moment has passed, it preserves a memory for us to enjoy at leisure. Do you ever catch yourself wondering about the stories that have led up to this moment? Or about the stories behind the lens? How did the photographer see it? And why did he choose that precise moment to click the shutter.
Look forward to an evening filled with perspectives on all these questions and more. We are delighted to have on board Sandesh Bhandare, award-winning photographer, for this weeks Mumbai Local. Sandesh is an amazing photographer whose work has been showcased extensively. Amongst other subjects, his photographs reflect his fascination for capturing live performances and happenings. Rich, cultural experiences like Tamaasha, the akhada, bahurupi and now, the Waarli pilgrimage, come alive in his photographs. In this session, Sandesh will open up the photographer's world, as seen through his eyes, the lens and a unique perspective. He will show us some of his favorite work and will take us through each of their stories. On these journeys, we will begin to understand what captures a photographer's imagination and what makes him capture a particular moment.
It's not always about a smartphone snap and an instant upload. Sometimes, we need to stay with an image, listen to its story and re-experience the power of photography. Let's enjoy a Mumbai Local where we will be doing just that.
