Arun Vijai Mathavan
Photography is an art form that transcends its technicality into diverse perspectives and allows photographers to be able to imagine and re-imagine the subject, form, and material of the photograph. To delve deeper into the medium of photography, MAP is delighted to bring you Shutter Stories — a photography talk featuring Arun Vijai Mathavan. The series will feature established and emerging lens-based artists, who share their journey through the medium, as well as the valuable insights learned and unlearned from their own practice.
This episode of the talk series features Arun Vijai Mathavan, who works within documentary photography and explores issues of spaces with their relation to the environment. Join us as Arun delves deeper into his projects, Millennia of Oppression (a study on mortuary workers), Urban Mountains (a study about dumpyards), and Rediscovering Indian Photography (from the archives of Nathan Studios).
Bookings are closed for this event.
