Ways of Seeing

24 JULY TO 11 AUGUST

INDIAN INSTITUTE FOR HUMAN SETTLEMENTS, BENGALURU

The photographs in “Ways of Seeing” drew attention to factors that affect how we look at, judge and ascribe meaning to cities. Highlights included Zohrab Reys Gamat’s images of Bengaluru taken between 5 and 8 pm, hours associated with the heavy road traffic that is a distinguishing feature of the city; Kunal Deshpande’s collection “Reality Exists Only in the Human Mind, Nowhere Else,” focused on buildings and public spaces in numerous municipalities;  Vikram M S’s collection “Solitude,” of images of spaces and people composed to evoke loneliness; and Yashodara Udupa’s collection “Juxtaposing the Innocence of Childhood and Old Age,” with photographs that associate urban spaces with children and the elderly.
