The year is 1970. You are in France looking at life in the era of disco and boogie. Long hair and moustaches adorn the heads of the men and la mode grips the spirits of the women. Fashion is in the air along with protests (it is France, after all) and life is beautiful. As they would say in France, “La vie est belle”.

About The Exhibition

This exhibition focuses on Prof. Parmanand Dalwadi’s journey to France in the ’70s tracing 50 photos captured with his Nikon F and the influence of Cartier-Bresson on his art. He captured incongruous and unusual situations combining humour, tenderness and observations of French society which are described with short stories for each photo.
