Exhibition of 26/11 images
On November 26, 2008, terrorists gripped the city by its lapels in a series of attacks that lasted around 60 hours.
Three months on, photojournalists who had put their lives in jeopardy while on the field are getting a chance to showcase their visual documentation in an exhibition by the Mumbai News Photographers Association (MNPA). The entire photo team of Hindustan Times has made a sizeable contribution to Bearing Witness, an exhibition of photographs taken during and after 26/11.
Judges Arko Datta, a photojournalist and World Press Photo awardee, and Dinesh Krishnan, director of photography, Forbes, have selected 72 photographs by 48 Mumbai photojournalists. “A common thread in all the photographs is the level of commitment and fearless the photographers have displayed during those trying days. Each picture is testament to their passion and vision,” said exhibition curator and MNPA committee member Rajanish Kakade.
