Join Us for Sunil Gupta & Charan Singh's "DELHI: Communities of Belonging" Book Signing at The Photography Show, AIPAD, New York

Sunil Gupta & Charan Singh, Sonal with a date, from
DELHI: Communities of Belonging.
We are pleased to announce that we will be hosting the DELHI: Communities of Belonging book signing at The Photography Show, presented by AIPAD. Please join us at our booth #602 Saturday April 1st from 1-2pm with photographers Sunil Gupta and Charan Singh.

For information and tickets please visit: www.aipadshow.com


About The Book
This present project originated when Gupta and Singh were approached by The New Press to compile a book about the LGBTQ community in Delhi. The result is a stunning series of more than 150 full-color documentary photographs and companion first-person texts that together offer an unprecedented portrait of queer people’s lives in India today. The book was launched to rave reviews in November, 2016. Indian historian and gay studies scholar Saleem Kidwai remarked: “… A visible queer community has emerged in Delhi over the past two decades. What was silent and private has emerged into the public sphere. Gupta’s and Singh’s work bears testimony to this.” Some of the works were featured in January at the Victoria and Albert Museum to highlight the 50th anniversary of the partial decriminalization of homosexuality in England and Wales.

Upcoming Exhibition - Guillaume Simoneau: Experimental Lake

 
Exhibition Dates: April 1 - May 6
Artist's Reception: Saturday, May 6, 2-5pm
Online Preview: beginning March 25th at ffotoimage.com


The Stephen Bulger Gallery is pleased to present "Experimental Lake" our first solo exhibition of work by Canadian artist Guillaume Simoneau.


Canada's reputation as a caring country suffered immensely when funding for scientific research, designed to benefit all nations, was cancelled under the last Conservative government. Guillaume Simoneau's photographs are like signposts in the wilderness. They are not memorial in nature but sing nature's praises alongside human handiwork.

A fugitive storyline is to be pieced together by us out of the folklore of the moment, wherein the artist and we, his viewers, find ourselves on the cusp and hungry for answers. This compendium of images is unhinged from the moorings of conventional narrative readings. They speak of travel, pilgrimage, epiphany and discovery with a simple, selfless stoicism. Time of day, experiments out on the water, and scientific equipment, all suggest an itinerary which is at once mysterious and immanent, pungent and rich.

Simoneau has stated about the project that "this body of work moves away from the omnipresent vanity found all around us these days and focuses, at once, on the outside; on the idea of common good and necessary evil. The resulting work is presented not as a series about the Experimental Lakes Area (ELA) but as a compendium of images produced on location at the ELA and therefore infused by its spirit and beauty".

Guillaume Simoneau (b. 1978, Québec) began his independent studies in photography after completing a diploma in applied science. Simoneau has exhibited his photographs internationally and today, his work can be found in a number of permanent collections including the Victoria & Albert Museum (London), the Museum of Fine Arts (Houston), and the Museum of Contemporary Photography (Chicago). His previous body of work, "Love and War" was exhibited at the Museum of Contemporary Photography (Chicago) and published by Dewi Lewis Publishing (UK). The related publication, introduced by Lisa J. Sutcliffe from the SFMoMA, was shortlisted for both First Book Award and European Publishers Award for Photography. His new series "Experimental Lake" will be published by MACK in 2017. Simoneau currently lives and works in Montreal.
