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 Kashmirâ€”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.

Still from the documentary In search of Aseemun, from a grant made to filmmaker Taran Khan for a film on the significance of Sufism in the lives of communities in Awadh, Uttar Pradesh. The idea for the film originated from a grant from IFA in 2004 to understand the world of Sufism in Uttar Pradesh. In the film, the filmmaker and her grandfather, S M Mehdi, an acclaimed writer in Urdu, look for traces of the world that shaped the music of Aseemun, a gifted but obscure folk singer who was part of both their lives. Using old photographs, home video and music, the film travels into a way of life that assimilated the best of Hindu and Muslim cultures.
This grant was made possible with part support from Anwar Siddiqi and Lord Khalid Hammed.

Image from collaborative research between an anthropologist, Janaki Abraham, and Sumant Jayakrishnan, an installation artist/set designer, towards a multimedia installation on the visual culture of the Thiyyas, a community from Kerala. The project sought to understand how unlike local art practices, which have received attention and recognition as art forms, visual cultures of communities spread across geographical areas have remained unexamined. They investigated this culture through documentation produced by the community itself photographs, paintings, letters, family trees, wills, wedding albums, genealogical charts, medical histories etc.

Image from a grant made to ceramic artist, Kristine Michael and textile artist, Kumkum Jain for a clay and fibre installation based on interrelated themes depicted in Indian and Greek myths. The installation brought together many concepts on fertility, skin as clay, and the sense of dissolution and renewal associated with the sea. They explored the idea of fertility through the Greek myth of Demeter and Persephone. For their ruminations on skin as clay, the artists looked to Parvati for inspiration, focussing on the story of how she moulds her son from the clayey substance rubbed off her skin.
These projects have been made possible with an Archival and Museum Fellowship from India Foundation for the Arts, in collaboration with CSSSC, with support from Voltas Limited. With Afrah Shafiq, Sujaan Mukherjee, Vishwajyoti Ghosh.
