CITY OF PHOTOS, followed by Q & A with filmmaker Nishtha Jain, co-sponsored by Looking Glass Photo & Camera and 3rd i
City of Photos explores the little known ethos of neighborhood photo studios in Indian cities, discovering entire imaginary worlds in the smallest of spaces. As full of surprises as the people who frequent these studios are the backdrops they enjoy posing against and the props they choose. These afford fascinating glimpses into individual fantasies and popular tastes.
This film features a post-film Q&A with director Nishtha Jain.
