Photography Exhibition – Living In A Changing Environment – Sunday 23 May 2010 to Sunday 30 May 2010, Pune
You are cordially invited to attend a photography exhibition curated by the Maharashtra Cultural Center and the Max Mueller Bhavan. The photographs were taken during a one-week-workshop conducted by German photographer Stefan Koppelkamm and assisted by Bangalore based architect-photographer Peeyush Sekhsaria.
The exhibition unites twelve personal perspectives of the city of Pune. Some of the photographers take you on a discovery tour to places which contribute to the identity of their city but which are threatened by the dynamics of real estate and neglect. Others take a critical look at the ubiquitous billboards which dominate the appearance of large parts of the city and at the new urban lifestyle symbolized by glass and concrete buildings which are neither adapted to the climate nor to the architectural and cultural context.
The photographers hope that this exhibition will make a visual contribution to a discussion about the future of their city – a discussion they feel is necessary and urgent.
