“ Photography is a small voice, at best, but sometimes one photograph, or a group of them, can lure our sense of awareness.” - Eugene Smith
Sarker Protick / Love me or Kill me
Photography is one of the most democratic art forms, largely free from the fetters of formalism and censorship. Avant-garde photographers are experimenting with mixed-media to tell stories like never before. On one hand, when intertextuality with cinema, music and literature is building new dimensions, the other hand is seeing unseen avenues of entrepreneurship growing out of nowhere. The increasing penetration of photography in social networking, in science and technology, in law and surveillance is changing the way we look at our lives.
JUPF is an endeavour to find answers to the conundrums arising out of this evolution in the medium of photography. JUPF wishes to bring together the academia, the artists, the students and the people from various parts of the world, in a first-of-its-kind attempt, to unravel and understand those answers through various exhibitions, projections, artist talks, workshops, reviews, symposia and the quintessential “adda”. It pledges to provide an open arena to promote the works of young artists and help them further develop their art.
