Exhibition Briefing

Exhibition of Contemporary Fine Art Photography:

Urban Fragments

Poster for Urban Fragments, Exhibition of Fine Art Photography by Anindo Ghosh, 12-18 June 2012, Mumbai. An exhibition of selected works by ace photographer Anindo Ghosh, at Jehangir Art Gallery, Mumbai.The photographs in this collection span the range from inspiring to amusing, from abstract to esoteric, from film to digital, and from black and white to vividly colorful. Every image being exhibited brings with it the powerful visual impact that has characterized the work of Anindo Ghosh, as has been noted and written about by journalists and art critics ever since his debut exhibition in early 2007. In this exhibition, you will see images that demand a second look, images that provoke thought or excite perception: Fine art images expressing the artist’s distinctive style and vision, of glimpses every city dweller has seen at some time, but perhaps not noticed. Also being presented are some images breaking from the conventional rectangular format, a handful of bold visual stories in square format. The exhibition will be open to the public on all days from 12th to 18th June 2012, from 11 am to 7 pm, and the artist will be present at the gallery to chat with visitors all day. There is no entry restriction or fee, and it is hoped that visitors will enjoy the show enough to come back to "look again", with friends and family.

 About Jehangir Art Gallery:
Industrial EchoesEstablished by Sir Cowasjee Jehangir in 1952, Jehangir Art Gallery is the most prestigious gallery destination for exhibitions of fine art in any form, in the country.  It is well recognized as India's foremost art gallery, and a landmark and tourist attraction in itself. The gallery is located at the Kala Ghoda circle, Fort, Mumbai, next to the Prince of Wales Museum, another famouse landmark of Mumbai. Being invited to exhibit at this gallery is the ultimate honor and achievement for any artist in India. This is especially true for photography as an art form, which is still in the process of being understood as an independent form of art in itself, rather than a craft.
