About the Event
Sundays with JOJO
Every Sunday we invite you to come and engage with photobooks at our library and bookshop in Mumbai through engagements like talks, coffee menus, bok signings, lectures, portfolio reviews, casual meets and other fun events!
This Sunday, we invite Rohit Saha to take us on his journey as an artist, photographer, documentarian and bookmaker. He will talke about his photobook 1528 and take us through his process, research, ethics and experiences in making the work and the book. Are you working on a documentary story of your own? Do you want to know what its like to study at NID? or perhaps how to start making a photobook ? Are you wondering what applying to photobook grants can do for you? These are all questions you can ask Rohit over coffee before or after his talk.
