Review: "Sacred Sight, Photographs in India" at Howard Greenberg

Posted By Administration, Wednesday, March 4, 2009

India has provided visiting photographers with a fascinating if elusive subject: exotic and tantalizingly unknowable.

A serious survey exhibition on India as seen through the camera's lens (one that includes more than token Indian artists) remains to be done, but this show, drawn largely from the gallery's rich archives, is a useful jumping-off point. Among the sharpest foreign observers here are Henri Cartier-Bresson, William Gedney, Marc Riboud, and Margaret Bourke-White. Four of Mary Ellen Mark's color images of brothel life along Bombay's Falkland Road are a high point, as are the vividly hand-colored vintage studio portraits that open the show.

From The New Yorker.
