Sneha Sikand of Saffronart on an upcoming celebration of photography in Mumbai
New Delhi: Come March 2013 and it will be time for Mumbai’s first ever festival of photography. Open to all, it will be spread across various venues in the city, including museums, galleries, restaurants and other public spaces. The central theme of the festival is THE CITY – a celebration of life in these constructed spaces that become part of one’s identity. FOCUS aims to promote the works of young and established photographers from India and abroad.
Organised in collaboration with Asia Art Projects, FOCUS wants to emphasize the relevance of photography and how it translates an individual’s history and creates a larger vision.
FOCUS has also partnered with Wishberry, a crowd-funding platform to raise funds which will be used to organize and promote the event.
Also, in conjunction with the event, a series of competitions for student, amateur and professional photographers will be held. More information will be available on the FOCUS website soon.
