How can a photographer create without creations of others?

The artist, Hema Upadhyay, recreated the Dharavi Slum of Bombay on two sides of a narrow corridor. This photograph plays with the lights and shows a detail the elaborated work.

A great family band helped me with the title of this post: thanks! But the title only. The content is, once again, related to the Volvo Ocean Race and its stop in Lorient, France.

The Alpha Jet of the Patrouille de France (French Acrobatic Patrol) performed an acrobatic demonstration to welcome the teams of the Volvo Ocean Race.

Paris-Delhi-Bombay

Paris-Delhi-Bombay could stand for the destinations of my planned trip for the next months… but it is also the title of the Current exhibition in Centre Pompidou, Paris

Different artists, either French or Indian contributed to this exhibition. Their works of Art  express what they think or what they perceive about India today.

My favorite piece is the one from Hema UPADHYAY: Think Left, Think Right, Think Low, Think Tight, 2010

It is a colorful representation of the largest slum of Mumbai called Dharavi. Have a look at the pictures and try to imagine a tight corridor. On both side of it, vertically and miniature, full of colors, a reproduction of the slum thanks to recycled materials. It is amazing to pay attention to the details like places of worship or electrical systems!

If you happen to be in Paris anytime from now until the 19th of September 2011, do not hesitate to visit the Centre Pompidou!
