NewsWritten by Express News Service | Published: March 25 2013 2:45 am Related News Shubhangi Khapre:What brought you to India to take up photography…and set up a gallery Matthieu Foss:My wife is from Mumbai Also it was a time in my career when I had worked behind Paris Photo fairand then worked at several galleries looking after their collectionsand organised exhibitions in France and China We looked at India because so many positive things were happening here in terms of cultureand for Indian art around the world things were economically more feasible When we movedincidentallythere were no photography galleries here There was Tasveer in Bangalore and one called PhotoInk in Delhi and so I started doing exhibitions in Mumbai Susan Hapgood:My husband is an architect and we decided to come here for two years to get out of a pretty complacent reality in New York We are going to leave India and go back there by the end of this year As an art historian and curatorI started Mumbai Art Room because I felt the art scene needs a non-profit organization Coming to photographyI came upon an incredible book called India Through the Lens by Vidya Daheja and I dived right into it I then started researching on 19th century photography and quickly found that there is a huge amount of research still to be done So I was doing this during my free time from my gallery When FOCUS Festival was being conceivedMatthieu thought I may be able to curate for it Alaka Sahani:Tell us more about FOCUS Photography Festivalthe first of its kind in Mumbai Matthieu Foss:Its been put together by people who have a passion for photography The others on the team are Elise FosterVander Elst of Asia Art Projects and Nic Antaki We began with approaching different venues and people across the city who we knew would make an effort to put together an exhibitionan eventa project with a certain standard We were hence able to work with galleriesalternative spaces like bookstoresrestaurantsshops and also public spaces like Horniman Circle and international institutes like Goethe Institute Zaira Arslan:Was there hesitance from shopscafes and eateries to come on board Focus Festival Matthieu Foss:The owner of Kala Ghoda Cafe is a photographer So hes done several photo exhibitions in his place before Places like Good EarthBlue Frog hadnt ever had photo exhibitions before so it actually did take a little time to convince them but the feedback weve had from them is very positive Nirad Pandharipande:How can Mumbais municipal corporation help in promoting art Susan Hapgood:It can fund more projects of this kind I am surprised to know that the municipal funding bodies dont necessarily have as much autonomy over the funding as I would expect They have to ask Delhi Matthieu Foss:For Focus Festivalwe approached different public institutions We didnt approach the Mumbai municipality per seexcept for permission to display in public places like the Horniman Circle Yesthere could be a lot more supportits just difficult to know whom to go toand the time that you have to spend finding the right person and then knowing what documents you need to have Vidya Prabhu:Was there a conscious decision to maintain a balance between the different genres of photography at the festival Matthieu Foss:The main theme of the festival is The City Its a very open themeand can be about something localor about any city It can be about urbanismarchitecture or overpopulation Susan Hapgood:For the exhibition I didI was dealing with a span of time from the 1850s to about 1900 Thats a 50-year period and I was pretty cognizant of all the different types of photography of those times For me some of the fascinating bodies of work were anthropological and ethnographic images the British were taking of the Indians right at the time photography was being introduced Theres an array of photographs from the 19th century that have no bearing today Theres also a lot of salvaged photographsarchaeological sites as they are called Then there are many more photographs that are not considered works of art So I was very careful in the didactics to articulate different kinds of photographs available Shubhangi Khapre:What is the image of the city that has been most captivating in this festival Susan Hapgood:One of the images is of two boats in a Thane creek which is from the 1850s It is exquisitely beautiful Another one I love is a shot of Colaba Causeway before any of the reclamation was there Smita Nair:One sees a lot of portraits in your collection Could you tell me where these were sourced from Susan Hapgood:Many are sourced from private collectors One can also purchase art online A lot of families did not value their archives But a lot of photo albums were quite valuable People just threw out their photographs But they did not end up in trash and instead found a secondary market Sagnik Chowdhury:Do you see photography as a chronicler of changing times and what sort of mood do you see coming out of Mumbai Susan Hapgood:I think of Mumbai as a metropolis full of incredible potentials and difficulties I curated the Mumbai Pavilion of the Shanghai Bienelle last year and the title of the show was Energy Plus One of the tenets of our theme was that in Mumbai one plus one doesnt make twoit equals to ten Priyanka Pereira:Do you think photography as an art has grown in India over the last few years Matthieu Foss:Yes it hasbut we still have a long way to go We need more courses and universities educating on the history of photography More and more galleries are doing photo showseven the ones that havent hosted photography exhibitions have realised its time to try So in that respectyesI think there has been a change Susan Hapgood:When I had done an exhibition of Indian street photography at Mumbai Art Roomit has been by far the most heavily attended exhibitions Clearlythere is an interest level which I didnt expect actually Alaka Sahani:Has the market for photography opened up Do collectors buy photographs Matthieu Foss:Not enough Susan Hapgood:It is generally undervalued in the Indian market Mayura Janwalkar:How undervalued is it Susan Hapgood:I would say extremely undervalued There is a market but if someone is interested in collecting contemporary or 19th century photographsI would say it is still extremely undervalued as compared to the rest of the world Mayura Janwalkar:The editor-in-chief of The Guardian said that anyone with a Twitter account these days is a journalist So anyone with a smartphone can be a photographer Has this changed the life of the real photographer Matthieu Foss:The thought is disorienting and overwhelmingbut at the same time it is good to know that anyone can use a camera and post images on InstagramTwitterFacebook and then discuss them Alsoas Raghu Rai and Swapan Parekh were saying at a talksometimes it is also important to stop and look at a certain image and saywhy is this image speaking to me Why is it important Why is it that something makes it different from the others Yeseveryone is a photographerbut only few will single out imagesput them together and do a body of work or exhibition Zaira Arslan:There are ways through which one can completely change the colour and composition of the photograph How acceptable is it Matthieu Foss:It depends on the photographer and the work that is created If you see some photographs of oceansyou will see they are two photographs that were put together and the negatives were taped together and reprinted It is impossible to have the contrast of the ocean so strong with the skies so bright Alaka Sahani:Do you feel Indians have not archived their early photographs well Susan Hapgood:There are archive topics that are coming to light For instance in Udaipur City Palaceit wasnt quite discoveredbut they opened some trunks which were filled with photographs I think there were 10 trunks in Udaipur that the family had So people are finding more archives that have been preserved but are suddenly becoming more interesting in todays world Theres also the Al Kazi Foundation of Photography in New Delhi which is one of the most prestigious holdings of Indian photography I think that there are some archives that existbut I think some of the biggest archives are also in the UK The British library has some of the biggest holdings of old photographs Alsothe climate in India makes it difficult for photographs to survive for a longlong periodbecause change in temperature and humidity is detrimental to wellbeing of photographs Priyanka Pereira:What are the expansion plans for the Focus Festival Matthieu Foss:Focus is going to happen every two years if all goes wellwith a different theme We hope to expand it to different areas of the city and we hope it remains free and open to all (Transcribed by Sankhayan GhoshZaira Arslan & Priyanka Pereira ) For all the latest Mumbai News download Indian Express App More Related NewsJimmy
