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.
