Event Details

Vineet Vohra’s exhibition displays the soul of his street photography. By capturing photographs of people, animals and scenes in media res, Vohra endeavours to relay the essence of serendipity as he understands his unsheltered intention. Serendipity through this catalogue of photographs makes the familiar into something poetic, and at times even mythical, combining factors such as proximity, similarity, intuition, direction and closure.
