We are delighted to invite you to the book release of Witness: Kashmir 1986-2016: 9 Photographers. The curator of this illuminating volume, documentary filmmaker Sanjay Kak, the designer Sukanya Baskar and 2 of the photographers, Altaf Qadri, Showkat Nanda from the group of 9 photographers who are part of this project, will be in conversation with art critic Sadanand Menon.

The book brings together more than 200 photographs by a selected group of practitioners. The oldest amongst them was already a working professional in 1986, and the youngest not yet twenty in 2016: Meraj Ud din, Javeed Shah, Dar Yasin, Javed Dar, Altaf Qadri, Sumit Dayal, Showkat Nanda, Syed Shahriyar and Azaan Shah.

Photography in Kashmir has emerged as a powerful witness to its troubled present. Over the past thirty years a remarkable generation of photographers, rooted in the everyday of photojournalism and stretching away from those limits when they can, have steadily illuminated a little understood period of contemporary life in Kashmir. This often stunning body of work has challenged the established images of Kashmir—as a beautiful landscape sans people; as an innocent paradise; and more recently, as a paradise beset by mindless violence.

The accompanying text by Sanjay Kak draws from conversations with the photographers to bring out the complex relationship that each one of them has with photography and the varied ways in which they balance it with their commitment to their own lives, and to Kashmir. At once both insightful and unsettling in their beauty, the photographs in this book raise profound questions about the place of artistic practice in zones of conflict.

Please note that while entry to the event is free we do request you to RSVP for the event by writing to joyce@indiaifa.org

This project was part supported by the Prince Claus Fund for Culture and Development, under their Culture in Defiance programme; and India Foundation for the Arts, under the Arts Research programme.

Avik and Madhuja received a grant to create multiple artistic interpretations of Lubdhak, a novel by the Bengali author Nabarun Bhattacharya. Set in a dystopic Kolkata, their work brings alive the protagonists of the novel dogs, and their struggle for survival - through a stop-motion animation film and a graphic novel.

Samina Mishra and Nandini Chandra Archival and Museum Fellowship: 2011-2012

Image from the archive of the Childrens Film Society of India (CFSI), part of a fellowship awarded to documentary filmmaker Samina Mishra and researcher Nandini Chandra. They received the fellowship for Nehrus Children: The Child in the CFSI Archive, to shed light on how the State imagined and represented the child. The research covered the period from 1955, when CFSI was established, to the early 1980s. CFSI is examined as a vehicle for promoting the Nehruvian idea of India, being a significant repository of images and narratives that tell us about how the child was viewed in Nehrus India.

Sunlight Trust (GOA CAP) Extending Arts Practice: 2010-2011

Image from a grant made to the Sunlight Trust, Goa for the ALTlab residency, which encourages photographers to experiment with alternative photography processes and materials. Four photographers concerned with form-based experimentation came together for two months at the laboratory of the Goa Centre for Alternative Photography (GOA CAP). From experimenting with scratching and painting negatives to using alternative printing and processing methods, the residency sought to create an environment within which creative mistakes, innovation and discovery are celebrated.

The images were part of an exhibition held at the end of the residency. #IFAGrant #IFA
