4 photographs (each 1000 X 800 mm)
Peter Bialobrzeski uses his photographic lenses to bring us face to face with a contemporaneity of material and infrastructure that shapes the visual and physical experience of being a Mumbaikar today. While debates on identity run parallel to construction wars in the city, the two come together in the photographs of Bialobrzeski very critically. The brashness and rawness of construction, jazzy materials, rampant building activity occupy these images, asking us to wonder about the citizens that ask for these, or try to escape these, or simply survive these landscapes. The city projects a broadness of success and wealth, creating spaces that are today beyond the classical imaginations of squares and streets, or safely divided into inside and outside.
