Event| Legacy of Photojournalism
Posted on: 25-04-2016
Time-Life, the iconic erstwhile American news magazine, is recognised for its tremendous contribution to the field of photo-journalism. Beginning with covering one of the most crucial periods in American history i.e. World War II, and capturing the most dramatic pictures of the conflict, the magazine was deemed one of the most influential of its times. While the magazine folded in 2007, it leaves behind an incomparably rich legacy, both in reportage and photo-journalism.
Deepak Puri, Time-Life Magazine’s South Asia picture editor (for over three-decades) donated his personal collection of photographs, to the Museum of Art & Photography (MAP) in Bangalore in early 2015. This collection of over 150 photographs includes some of the best practitioners of the documentary aesthetic - such as James Nachtwey, Sebastião Salgado and our own, indomitable Raghu Rai.
As part of its 10th anniversary, Tasveer in collaboration with MAP, is exhibiting this collection which forms part of the ‘most important archives of 20th century photojournalism in the country’ (Tasveer Press Release). This exhibition comes to Mumbai for the very first time and will be open for public viewing at TARQ starting 28th of April.
For any one who is interested in journalism – it will indeed be a pity if this is missed.
