Visit VASA and the Exhibition

VASA exhibitions is happy to present the work of four Indian photographers - ( For the Promised  Heaven in the Sky ), who have through their own individual story telling sensibility and strong sense of imagery have deeply explored and investigated on the subject through varied communities and their diverse practice of worshipping the superstitious and supernatural  forces spanning the country.  

This exhibition gives us an insight into the deep-rooted unquestioning faith and superstition within certain Indian communities, which are far removed from urban reality. These communities encourage and follow strange rituals, which are directed by false beliefs and lack of education. Such beliefs which emerge out of ignorance, perceived supernatural influences and fear of the unknown, are followed in order to achieve a sense of cultural, economical, social or religious well being.
