Bengaluru’s urban environment operates at two levels – one, unhurried and slow-paced, fuelled by siestas and filter coffee; and two, frantic and racy, with travel and traffic marking the beginning and end of work hours. Photographing the rhythm of the city always has a little bit of everything to offer. This experience can be enlivened through the exercise of a photowalk – a communal activity that engages with the praxis of photography as a way to tap into the city’s heartbeat.
Join us to explore the dynamic beats of the city’s exciting localities, and along with fellow enthusiasts, capture a unique slice of Bengaluru on a photowalk focusing on market and street photography led by photographer Shitaljit Bloom.
Whether you’ve lived around the area or never visited before, this photowalk of Shivajinagar and Commercial Street offers a chance to stop, notice new things, and capture life at one of the busiest markets of Bangalore – home to one of the oldest churches of Bengaluru and a one-stop bargain hunter’s paradise for everything from furniture and home furnishings to stationery and clothes, not to mention everything a food lover’s heart desires!
Please note that participants are required to bring their own cameras. We also advise you to wear comfortable clothing and shoes for the walk and dress appropriately for the weather.
If you should have any accessibility needs or questions, please write to firstname.lastname@example.org prior to register and let us know the nature of your difficulty and the accommodations that may be required. We will try our best to make the necessary arrangements in consultation with you.
Starting point: St Mary’s Basilica church, Shivajinagar, Bengaluru
