With unit master Ms. Nomura Sakiko who is a photographer from Japan, we try to observe the present of the city Bhopal. With observing the present we try to find out the history of Bhopal which in hiding in the citizen’s own histories.
Ms. Nomura visited Bhopal at 25th anniversary of gas tragedy in 2009. She brought her 140 pictures which were taken by at that time. Chasing the people in her pictures, we explore the city with disposable cameras. We distributed 100 disposable camera to the citizen whom we met. And we asked them to take their favorite people and favorite place. Also with making the interview with them we try to identify their lives and their history.
At the end of this workshop all – 2000pieces of - pictures which were taken by citizens f Bhopal are be the postcards and to be send to the world. Those postcard will explore the world with the messages of Bhopal and connect the Bhopal to the world. That is what we say the urban photo rhizome.
