New Delhi : Madan Mahatta


The Photoink gallery, in collaboration with curator Ram Rahman, will present through July 2nd seventy images of photographer Madan Mahatta. The images trace the birth of modern Indian architecture in Delhi in the 1950s and 60s. Trained in Great Britain, Madan Mahatta returned to India in 1954, where he joined the family studio in Delhi, one of the most prestigious in the capital. While working as a studio photographer, he photographed Delhi’s independence and architectural expansion. In the 1950s, Jawaharlal Nerhu, named Prime Minister in 1947 after the independance of India, launched an ambitious construction campaign in the Indian capital, one that would give rise to an independent, modern and triumphant India.
