A Look Back – Pravleen Chugh
DATE: Monday, 23rd to Sunday 29th January, 2017
TIME: 10.30 AM to 7.00 PM
When was the last time you looked through old family photographs? Did they remind you of how faces, bodies, people and times have changed? Did these printed photographs have tell-tale signs, like folds because of the numerous times they’ve been touched?
Technology is transforming rapidly. It has had a significant effect on the art of photography too. In the world of professionally clicked photographs, the raw untrained effect of old photographs is fading away. A Look Back hopes to evoke a sense of nostalgia by celebrating the stories that old family photographs have to tell.
