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.

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
