Abstract or Description
Exhibition catalogue produced to accompany the landmark exhibition at the Whitechapel Gallery: Where Three Dreams Cross.
Co-published with Fotomuseum Winterthur and Steild, this publication gives an inside view of how modern India, Pakistan and Bangladesh have been shaped through the lens of their photographers. Like the exhibition, the catalogue is arranged over five themes with works selected from the last 150 years. 'The Portrait' shows the evolution of self-representation; 'The Family' explores close bonds and relationships through early hand-painted and contemporary portraits; 'The Body Politic' charts political moments, movements and campaigns; 'The Performance' focuses on the golden age of Bollywood, circus performers and artistic practices that engage with masquerade; while 'The Street' looks at the built environment, social documentary and street photography.
ISBN: 978-0-85488-179-6, softback, 288 pages, colour illustrations. Co-published by the Whitechapel Gallery, Fotomuseum Winterthur, and Steidl, 2010.
