The exhibition ‘Kashmir’ is just the beginning of a much greater initiative led by Emaho magazine founder Manik Katyal to bring Kashmiri photography to the world and to elevate the genre locally. “Kashmir is a place, which is known globally for its political situation for the last 25 years and all the cultural aspects, the art scene, the folk scene, have completely been ignored. I want to communicate that Kashmir has so much more to offer and that’s why I am taking this exhibition to the Chiang Mai Documentary Arts Festival, which will attract a much more global audience than if I am doing this exhibition in Delhi or anywhere in India.” says Katyal.
