The VASA exhibition by Indian photographer Sudharak Olwe includes two portfolios and videos directed or filmed by Olwe.
Sudharak Olwe’s work addresses the marginalized people of India. He addresses violence against woman in “Thrice Oppressed” and in “The Search for Dignity and Justice: The untold story of Mumbai’s conservancy workers” the dehumanizing conditions of the sweepers of Bombay.
The exhibition includes a number of videos focused on improving the lives of marginal villagers, education and health conditions. One video is from the TED series where Olwe discusses his work with the context of social justice.
A curatorial essay by Sandeep Biswas provides a rich context for understanding Olwe’s work and commitment to photography and social justice.
Curator: Sandeep Biswas
* VASA wishes to welcome Sandeep Biwas to our international curatorial team.
