Abstract

Travel Photo Jaipur offers a curated selection of international photography inspired by the notion of journeys and visions as an outsider. The festival exhibitions will be staged at various public locations across Jaipur, inviting visitors to discover the city's heritage. The works will be printed in large formats, and will be complemented by an exciting programme of events that will transform the Pink City into a platform for showcasing and contemplating photography. Karen Knorr's photography explores cultural heritage and its ideological underpinnings. Questions concerning post colonialism and its relationship to aesthetics have permeated her photographic work since the 1980s. Her work India Song researched the stories and myths of India photographing animals and placing them in temples and palaces across heritage sites in Uttar Pradesh, Rajasthan, Karnataka, Tamil Nadu and Maharastra, blurring boundaries between reality and illusion.
