Excerpt – Concept note

“Like a chrysalis, Gurgaon, the Millenium city is both phenomenon and enigma, and its continuing dilemmas and complexities are explored in this exhibition. Eleven photographers, who vary in age and outlook, bring different, sometimes irreverent, perspectives to their images. Don’t look for prettily constructed narratives here; these interpretations silently pose uncomfortable questions about identity and development or unwrap layers where “everything conceals something else” (quote – Calvino). But throughout the exhibition you are aware of the power of the image to evoke response, almost forcing the viewer into the frame as a participant and not just an observer.”
