About the Exhibition
The photographs of Kashmir are as much a conversation with the stunning beauty of the land and its people, as they are an effort to engage with its multiple realities.
A chronicle of more than five years of travel and quiet observation, these images capture the lives—sometimes flourishing, occasionally stilled—that endure in the face of uncertainty and violence that have become synonymous with the Valley. Soldiers march in the spring tulip gardens of Srinagar; boys jump into the Nagin Lake to cool off; the afternoon sun entangles shadows on loops of razor-wire barricades in the middle of a street, and the biting Baramulla winter, cloaks a dismembered doll with snow.
Amit Mehra’s photography spans three decades across genres including architectural, advertising & documentary photography. He is the recipient of 'Best Photographer of the Year – Asia' in 2009 by the Sagamihara Museum, Japan for his book, 'India: A Timeless Celebration'.
Many of his photographs are a part of the collection of the Gabarron Foundation Museum, Spain and the Sagamihara Museum, Japan and also with many corporate & private collectors worldwide. He is the brand ambassador of iPhone, Fuji Cameras and previously Canon Cameras as well. Mehra’s photographs have been widely exhibited in London, New York, Tokyo, Sydney, Madrid, Milan, Melbourne, Dhaka, Delhi, Mumbai and Kolkata in solo-shows. His work has also been published in Time, Der Spiegel, The Guardian, Architectural Digest, Conde Nast, Financial Times - London and National Geographic.
Currently, Mehra is working on his next book project, ‘Sufis: Messengers of Peace’ and is also making a documentary film ‘Twilight of my city’, based on the tales of Old Delhi - India.
