All works in one Catalog

Inspired by the tradition of simple living, Manoj Kumar Jains talent lies not only in his compositional frames, but also in staying close to the people he captures. These portraits speak of waiting, surveying, of temporarily becoming part of a society, of earning trust. His body of work captures a world in transformation, both in seemingly timeless beauty and in a beauty that has very little time left .

A selected number of analogue black and white photographs presented in the gallery are postcolonial, they come from an Indian inside perspective, yet they reflect neither an analytic or a mere documentary view. As visitors explore, they would witness the photographer ́s interest towards the formalistic art approaches. „His eyes seem to deconstruct the image into forms and lines and sometimes his compositional ideas even turn into drawings.” – Dr. Uta Ruhkamp, Curator, Wolfsburg Museum observes. „There is an element of harmony in his photography, if not a search for it.“ she explains further in her essay Tales of truth written for the catalog for this exhibition.
