Women Changing India by Magnum Photos. March 24, 2012. Hyderabad, India.
Last night I had the pleasure of attending a Magnum Photos exhibition at an art gallery in Banjara Hills. The exhibit, Women Changing India, was a collection of portraits and multimedia stories about female movers and shakers in India. Filmmakers, hospital and bank CEOs, human rights activists, and artists were seen in their work environments and at home, and were captioned with personal statements about their vision for women in India. While I was slightly disappointed with the impact of the photography, the multimedia stories, like the women reflected in them, were powerful.
