Jodhpur, in Rajasthan, has earned the sobriquet ‘Blue City’ from Brahmapuri, a small and ancient settlement of Brahmins within the city. Brahmapuri is distinguished by its electric blue and azure structures, which are distinctly visible from the majestic Mehrangarh Fort. Sugato Mukherjee wanders through labyrinths to capture stunning glimpses of this ‘azure city’. MARWAR presents a selection of the photographer’s works.
The Dholpur Light Railway was commissioned in 1906 by Maharaja Rana of Dholpur to transport red sandstone from Chambal to Delhi. Parth Jha boards the train that runs on a narrow gauge before it is developed into a broad gauge section. MARWAR presents a selection of the photographer’s works from the ride that may soon become a part of India’s railway history.
A picture is worth a thousand words. A photgraph, if set against the right light, can create magic. Lensman Raghavendra Kodangala captures the extraordinary in everyday rustic life through his project ‘Light & Dust-Kaleidoscope Rajasthan’. The enchanting photographs bring out the beauty of the sandy terrain even as people go about their daily chores. With the sun’s rays acting as spotlights, particles of dust rise up like floating ballerinas.
