Workshop - India - Kolkata Daily Life During Diwali Nov. 2-9, 2013
Registration is now open! please visit the TPW site for more information. This workshop will offer the possibility to work on personal projects on daily life of one of the world’s most fascinating cities, and at the same time improve and develop the skills to produce work for future publication.
Kolkata is probably the city that better represents all the aspects and contradictions of modern India. Away from the mass touristy tours of colourful Rajastan and mystic Varanasi, Kolkata will raise your visual interest you at different levels. From beggers on the streets, to the rich mansion of Kolkata’s elite, to the intellectual circles which are the essence of the city, through the decadent palaces of a disappearing world, you will be surprised of how the city, despite its almost 15 million habitants, manages to work and be organized. The flower market, the temple to Kali at Kalighat, shopping areas in Park Street, young men playing soccer and cricket at the Maidan are part of daily life, as are the many NGO working to help the less fortunate. Yellow Taxis run together with rickshaws pullers, in a chaotic but still well orchestrated traffic. Remains of the British Empire, such as exclusive clubs and old building, mark their presence, together with Hindu temples, food markets, schools… Despite all this, you will find a humanity hard to find in other Indian mega-cities.
