This first US exhibition of Mumbai born photographer PAT presents us with an overview of his work dating from 1998 onwards. Whereas his practice is based on a personal approach, it simultaneously addresses themes of identity, ambiguity and originality within a larger, historical context. Using self-portraiture, nudes or still lives, all produced with traditional photographic techniques in b/w or color, his work assumes a highly idiosyncratic position within Indian contemporary photography. His voracious collecting of historical as well as current photo books, has informed PAT’s introspective search and opens it to a broader discourse.

This exhibition is part of the Asian Contemporary Art Week, March 21 – 31.
