FATHER AND SON, Richard and Pablo Bartholomew (India)
This publication brings together selections from the personal archives of well-known Indian Photojournalist Pablo Bartholomew and his late father Richard. A child refugee from Burma during WWII, Richard had settled in Delhi as a young man to become a writer, painter and eventually India's most important art critic. His classically beautiful photographs cronicle the lives of his young family, friends and artists that made up the newly emerging Boheme of 1950s India. Through the lens of the father we see Pablo and his brother Robin grow up and become adolescents, until the son in turn picks up the camera and directs it back at his father and family. From the moment of discovering his father's dark room the camera never leaves Pablo's side again.
The pictures selected for this volume come from the first decade of his work, 1970s Delhi, Calcutta and Bombay. They are the visual diary of a young man roaming, of his friends and family, lovers and losses.
