Land & Lens Photography Exhibition, Bengaluru

On behalf of Vanastree and Punarchith I would like to invite you to join us for a special exhibition featuring the photography of women farmers from Sirsi, and rural youth from Chamarajanagar, Karnataka —at the Venkatappa Art Gallery, Bengaluru.

The Land and Lens Exhibition

This vibrant collection of photos documents a buoyantly-bold process where a group of participants, none of whom had been previously trained in the use of a camera, were encouraged to fearlessly reveal their land, lives, and inherent creativity.

Through this exhibition, we aim to provide our photographers a uniquely creative space. One where previously unexpressed talents and expressions can open viewer’s eyes to places and lifescapes never explored.

More than simply a collection of photos, this exhibition features elements of traditional village art alongside contemporary media—woven together as a vivid narrative of a collective rural experience in the Chamarajanagar and Sirsi areas.
