Vintage Journey

Friday, March 27, 2015

Yamini Walia tells you about Shahid Datawala’s photography exhibition I Once Was Alive, which is being displayed at Gallery 7 at Kalaghoda

Shahid Datawala will be displaying a collection of photographs at Gallery 7 in Kala Ghoda, called I Once Was Alive. The exhibition is part of the Focus Photography Festival, which celebrates the art of photography, with a schedule of over 30 photography exhibitions, outdoor shows, workshops, book launches, talks and tours. Shahid’s exhibition revolves around vintage and rustic cars, which are symbolic of his journeys. Shahid’s work over the last two decades has spanned across various aspects of photography, furniture design, product design, jewellery making, graphics, fashion design and installations.

He tells us, “Have you ever wondered about the stories behind those vintage and rustic cars parked on the curb? Like trees growing in the middle of nowhere, these silently parked cars are complex portraits of journeys and hunts. These rust-eaten cars caught my attention over a decade ago. My images are as much portraits of the foregrounded objects as they are portraits of their (erstwhile) owners. Found outside their junkyard dwellings, the cars are more often than not, in the company of dilapidated architecture that is negotiating similar situations and contexts.”
