CROSSING BOUNDARIES – CAPTURING THE HUMAN CONDITION

Photographer: Dipankar Mukherjee
Hallway Gallery Level 4
cSPACE Marda Loop

For the month of February

This exhibition shares documentary photographs of humans taken in different settings to give us a further understanding of our race. What we do with this realization is another matter. What boundaries do we cross? What boundaries do we attempt to cross? Why do we even bother? Does this cause any action for change? These are the questions the photographer will want the viewers to get involved with.

The photographs are not meant to be “art.” The human condition is reflected as it is. I strongly believe that the places where the photographs were taken have relevance to the context. Necessity of Hope at the foothills of Mt. Kilimanjaro, a Cuban face, a sculpture of a woman in chains in Zanzibar, Keepers of the Gorillas in Rwanda, and others are very relevant to their locations. They reflect the uniqueness of the human condition as the location dictates, but what is expressed in the faces is universal.
