The theme for their major exhibition of the year was on India or more specifically: works that reflect or respond to in some way, the culture, history, environment or art of India.

  1. Tony, the photographs were wonderful but your comments on the Indian middle class inaccurate. Some are busy climbing the ladder,others work hard not to slide back and some are changing the world! The pictures were a treat


    1. Rukmini, I agree my comments were intemperate but as I said at the bottom not entirely untrue and I was trying to encapsulate the negatives of India all at once from an outsider’s point of view.

      However, thank you for defending the Indian middle class. Your comments are entirely accurate.
