Well known photographer, Samar S. Jodha, speaks of and shows his photographs of hidden stories, marginalized people and conflicts. The focus is on five series of work – the spirit of India’s elderly people, the Union Carbide plant – the source of the Bhopal gas tragedy, the tribals of Phaneng in Assam, the mistreatment of Commonwealth Games labourers in Delhi and the condition and artistry of miners in the North East. Samar is on the show Art Talk with Jujhar Singh (NewsX channel.)
Art Talk is a weekly show featuring India’s top artists, photographers, musicians and dancers – and the best emerging talent as well. The aim of the show is to demystify the great arts of India, particularly the classical and fine arts, and show how beautiful, interesting and spiritual they are.
