William Dalrymple | The Writer's Eye
29 March – 20 April 2016 at D-53 Defence Colony, New Delhi 110024
In a suite of black and white photographs, shot over two years, William Dalrymple brings elegance, inquiry and grace to the photographic form. Powerful and precise, the pictures in The Writer’s Eye are documents of landscape, conveying potent solitude and brooding strokes. The beloved author of scores of acclaimed books returns to a visual medium he first worked with in collegiate days, armed now with over two decades of writerly composure and brilliance.
Curated by bestselling writer and Sensorium Festival co-founder, Siddharth Dhanvant Shanghvi The Writer’s Eye is being exhibited at Sunaparanta: Goa Centre for the Arts in March 2016; Vadehra Art Gallery, New Delhi in March 2016; and Grosvenor Gallery, London in June 2016. The Writer’s Eye marks the public debut of a gifted visual artist.
This exhibition is accompanied by a limited edition book published by HarperCollins India.
