Stuart Freedman: The Palaces of Memory–Tales from the Indian Coffee House

01 January 2018

17 TO 23 JANUARY

AMETHYST, CHENNAI

This is an exhibition of 40 photographs by the British photographer Stuart Freedman, taken between 2010 and 2013, of the iconic Indian Coffee Houses across the country. Besides documenting the faded grandeur of these establishments that echo India’s colonial past, the series also encapsulates their unique atmosphere as “palaces of memory,” seemingly frozen in time with their largely unchanged decor. The exhibition is part of Tasveer Gallery’s twelfth season of travelling exhibitions.
