Sooni Taraporevala @ The Whitworth, Manchester

4 March 2017 - 28 January 2018

Photographer, screenwriter, filmmaker Sooni Taraporevala presents a series of black and white photographs depicting life in Bombay/Mumbai from 1976 to the present day. Capturing the city in which she grew up, Taraporevala’s images, cutting across class and community lines, are an insider’s affectionate view. The images, complex and intimate, quirky and quotidian, celebrate the odd and the everyday and are a significant contribution to the social history of one of India’s most diverse cities. Exploring a metropolis as its shape shifted over four decades, these works are personal documents of the city’s eccentrics, its children, its elderly, its landscape: a gentle mirror to culture and politics, with the secret sideways glance of a flaneur.
