Through Her Lens
Through Her Lens: Conversations on Reframing the Domestic is a webinar series curated to engage with the issues of present challenges — the lockdown, the collapse of the ‘public’ and the ‘private’ space, the merging of paid, unpaid work, etc. and photographers navigating their own domestic space and documenting intimate relations. This makes it a deeply personal work for anyone and the act of photography acquires new meaning. The distance between the documentarian and the subject, between the storyteller and the story has evidently collapsed.
To further delve into dialogue and experiences with feminists and queer researchers, activists and photographers in Northeast India, Zubaan Publishers in collaboration with Sikkim based curators, Mridu Rai and Anushya Pradhan, hopes to further engage with the question of the impact of a global pandemic and lockdown on communities in the Northeast.
