Mitch Epstein in India, 1978-1989

The Rencontres d’Arles presents “Mitch Epstein in India, 1978-1989.” The show, coproduced by the Rencontres d’Arles and the Thomas Zander Gallery, Cologne, features a selection of remastered prints from the thousands of photographs which Epstein shot during the eight trips to India which he took over the late seventies and eighties, on view at the Abbaye de Montmajour through September 25. The works are exhibited alongside the two films which Epstein collaborated on with his wife at the time, Indian director Mira Nair: India Cabaret (1985) and Salaam Bombay! (1988). These photographs and films attest to Epstein’s double-status in India as both insider and outsider, immersing the viewer in a place and time with all the complexity of sociopolitical codes of caste and religion, and all the simplicity of immediate experience.
