Padmashree Pablo Bartholomew

Updated: Jul 06, 2013 14:07 IST

Pablo Bartholomew was born in the Fifties and made his reputation in the Seventies. The son of art critic and curator Richard Bartholomew and Rati, a teacher of theatre, in 1984, he won the World Press Photo ‘Picture of the Year’ award for his iconic photograph from the Bhopal gas tragedy. His black and white photographs, made among friends and strangers, are typically shot under dim light, and is stamped with the restive spirit of the times. The exhibition, Outside In, A Tale of 3 Cities… the 70s & 80s showcased at the Photoink gallery, Delhi, is a hang of his favourite themes. It is also a homage to Bartholomew’s 2013 Padmashree award, the first photographer born in post-Independent India to win the Padma award. (Photo courtesy: Photoink)Text by Paramita Ghosh
