MITCH EPSTEIN En Inde. 1978-1989

Les Rencontres de la Photographie, Arles, France
4 Jul - 25 Sep 2022
Between 1978 and 1989, Mitch Epstein made eight trips to India and shot thousands of photographs. The result is an extensive body of work that shows Epstein’s unusual dual vantage in an extraordinarily complicated culture: Through his Indian family life and work, he was both an insider and outsider. These photographs, many of which are exhibited here for the first time, show a wide swath of subcultures which Epstein was able to enter, showing a deep and extended experience of India, where separate worlds converged.
