New Delhi-based photographer Pablo Bartholomew owes his strong anthropological roots and powerful finesse over the skill to his father, veteran art critic and photographer, Richard Bartholomew. Years after establishing his independent practice, Pablo is now the owner of three World Press Photo awards, the coveted Padma Shree award and the Ordre des Arts et des Lettres.
In his latest exploration of indigenous tribal groups and their way of life in India, Bartholomew has travelled to a remote village along the India-Myanmar border to capture the essence of the Nagas. Bartholomew had the opportunity to deconstruct his art and the motives for his latest project to the village locals who welcomed his ideas warmly.
Pablo captured a series of powerful and thought-provoking images that captures the essence of the Naga way of life. The Nagas come from an ancestry of ancient tribal warriors and headhunters that occupy the lofty Naga hills surrounding Assam and the north-eastern border of India.
Pablo’s exhibition is a visual journey that narrates the life, culture, and history of this community. The exhibition is on display from the 26th of February up till the 24th of March, 2022 at the Nine Fish Art Gallery in Mumbai.
