by Throckmorton, Jodi et al.
San Jose, California: San Jose Museum of Art / University of California Press, 2015. Hardcover. VG (Small ding along back edge, otherwise new.). White & illus. boards, 160 pp., color & duotone & BW illus. Issued in conjunction with several 2015 exhibitions. Contemporary South Asian artists "mine the uneasy history of photography in India as a means to challenge outmoded narratives, share hidden stories, and make personal connections with tradition. They draw on a diverse range of sources, from ethnographic photographs made at the height of the colonial era to hand-painted studio portraits and stills from Bollywood movies. Weighing the influence of the global against the draw of the local, these artists embrace tradition and innovation as covalent rather than competitive forces. Marking the US debut of several of the featured artists, [this book] deepens our understanding of the legacy of colonialism and celebrates new and socially engaged modes of image-making in India." (back cover) With essays by Jodi Throckmorton and Atreyee Gupta. The nine photographers/teams are: Nandan Ghiya, Gauri Gill, Jitish Kallat, Annu Palakunnathu Matthew, Madhuban Mitra and Manas Bhattacharya, Pushpamela N. and Clare Arni, Raqs Media Collective, Vivan Sundaram, and Surekha.
