    For 25 years a swirling mix of voices from India’s past and present has shaped Indian photography and video art. The artists’ gaze has been fixed on India’s lives, revealing, interpreting and influencing the staid, chaotic, monochrome and colourful dimensions of a country of over one billion people. All the artists represented provide rich insight into the dynamics shaping the contemporary Indian psyche and landscape.
