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.

Image from a grant made to Mozhi Trust for cataloguing and microfilming material on early Tamil cinema held at the Roja Muthiah Reference Library (RMRL), Chennai. Mozhi Trust, founded in 1990, is a public charitable trust that develops resources in language and culture. This grant helped document RMRLs collection on Tamil cinema, in addition to supplementing it by acquiring or microfilming privately-held print material on Tamil cinema. The imprints microfilmed included publicity materials, songbooks, magazine articles and promotional literature, which are important sources of information on that period.

Image from a grant made to graphic novelist Sarnath Bannerjee towards the creation of a graphic novel, The Barn Owls Wondrous Capers, on present-day Kolkata, by combining elements of a visual travelogue, a documentary comic book and a personal diary. Sarnath and his collaborator, filmmaker Anindya Roy, created a personal narrative of their inner impressions of the city, to explore the popular culture of Kolkata, against the backdrop of its cultural past. The book explores how the culture of 19th century Bengal manifests itself in todays Kolkata, through the sensibilities, wisdom and attitudes underlying the popular art of the 19th century.

Still from Nee Engey, a film by filmmaker R V Ramani, who received a grant to make a documentary film on the shadow puppet theatre of South India. The film enquires into the performative and technical aspects of shadow puppetry, while also serving as a record of the life and times of the puppeteers. The film is a celebration of the art of moving images, its original practitioners and community. It also seeks to identify features and areas of common interest between shadow puppetry and cinema parallels to highlight the fact that while cinema has borrowed from puppetry as an art form, it has also lead to the decline of contemporary puppetry.

Image from a grant made to artist Lipi Biswas towards collaborative workshops to facilitate an exchange of skills and techniques in pottery and ceramics between urban and folk artists. This collaboration between urban artists/potters Bidyut Roy and Lipi, and tribal/folk potters, Chunko Besra, Bhim Pandit and Sudarshan lead to workshops with other artists in the surrounding villages of Santhiniketan, West Bengal. The urban artists learned instinctive ways of arriving at form, the making of indigenous glazes, and the technique of making huge cylinders; while the folk artists learned alternative methods of preparing clay, working on a potter's pedestal and using chemical glazes.
