FOCUS Photography Festival
BIND presents a photobook library in a section of Trilogy Library and Bookstore.
As a platform, BIND aims to promote the visibility and access of contemporary photobooks in South Asia, while encouraging the growth of bookmaking and publishing practices with photography in the region. Since 2015, BIND has been building a collection of books to be made available to the public for consultation through photography festivals and other art related events. Besides their personal collections, all these books have been generously donated by artists, publishers and institutions that believe our engagement to share these books with the wider audience while fostering discussions around the photobook as a specific form of expression and art object.
True to their first wish to make our library a travelling one, the BINDbox enables them to carry the books and display them as unique objects, in different ways. On regular occasions, a guest will be invited to use the BINDbox and present a curated selection of photobooks exploring a certain thematic or question. For the first edition of the BINDbox, and in conjunction with FOCUS Mumbai Photography Festival, Asmita Parelkar proposes a selection of works exploring memory and the interweaving of its personal and collective dimensions. The BIND collection will also be accessible at Trilogy, the serene library with wonderful books handpicked by Ahalya & Meethil.
In collaboration with venue partner: Trilogy Library and Bookstore.
