The Past and The Present : An Iranian Legacy

Internationally recognised as a lifestyle and fashion photographer, Sebastian Cortés’ most recent series Sidhpur: Time Present Time Past is an in-depth photographic exploration of the Bohra Islamic community in Sidhpur, a little-known small town in Gujarat. Building on his desire to explore forms of biography, memory and metaphor—this latest exhibition demonstrates Cortés’ continuing interest in documenting and uncovering India’s more enigmatic facets, this time through careful photographic studies of the traditional habitats and domestic spaces of the Dawoodi Bohras, an elusive and veiled Islamic community.

Hello everyone!
As you must have watched and seen over the internet, last couple of days have been very difficult for the people of state of Tamil Nadu in India. Most places are flooded and the condition is so bad that the Indian Air Force had to come forward for the rescue operations.
