Photography Residency’05

In the previous century, photography helped shape art; in the current one, it has begun to dominate it. Not only are major international museums and galleries mounting blockbuster exhibitions, but art photographers are also being celebrated as contemporary masters. Both India and South Asia have strong traditions of documentary/reportage photography and an increasing number of visual artists are choosing to work exclusively with this medium while others adopt a more interdisciplinary approach.

The KHOJ PHOTOGRAPHY RESIDENCY sought to interrogate the ‘digital-ness’ of photography as a medium and all that it implies such as — interaction and collaboration, manipulation and realism and authenticity and authority by bringing together photographers / artists from the various sub genres of the medium such as documentary / reportage / portraiture / landscape / journalism / art photography etc.
