Behind the scenes at the Delhi Photo Festival 2015 jury selection
The Delhi Photo Festival’s curatorial team of Dinesh Khanna, Prashant Panjiar, Sohrab Hura, Sumit Dayal and Vidura Jang Bahadur have been pre-occupied with selections for this year’s edition. Aided and abetted by #DPF Associate Navneet Kaur Ahuja and intern Suvina Singal…the jury has been systematically sifting through a large number of submissions.
The selection process, always a thoughtful, intense experience is more interesting in this edition of the festival thanks to the addition of the Student Category. “It was exciting to see the submissions made by students of different photography schools,” says curator for #DPF2015 Vidura Jang Bahadur.
He adds, “A lot of the debate around the selections was about the visual quality of the work. The second was how the work tied in to the idea of ASPIRE and how it added to a larger conversation around the theme.”
#DPF2015 participants will be announced by June 15.
