Hamilton College’s Wellin Museum Presents “Refocusing the Lens"

Time: 11:00 AM

“Refocusing the Lens: Pranlal Patel’s Photographs of Women at Work in Ahmedabad” features images depicting women at work in the homes, neighborhoods and markets of Ahmedabad, India, in 1937. The photographer, Pranlal Patel, died this January at the age of 104 in Ahmedabad. His images reveal a bit about the history of Indian women, particularly members of the working class, as workforce participants in early 20th century. Patel’s approach was noteworthy because he shot in the field rather than in the studio; the resulting images offer an unprecedented documentary view of Indian society. The show is co-curated by Associate Professor of History Lisa Trivedi, who met Patel and his family as a doctoral student two decades ago, and Assistant Professor of Photography Robert Knight. Open Tuesday through Sunday from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. Closed on Mondays and college holidays. Hamilton College - Ruth and Elmer Wellin Museum of Art 315-859-4396
