Indian Photo Festival
The annual Indian Photo Festival, launched in 2015, is among the country’s longest-running international photography festivals. Held across multiple venues across its host city of Hyderabad, it comprises exhibitions, talks, discussions, portfolio reviews, screenings and workshops that are free to attend. A platform for professional and aspiring photographers, photography lovers, and the public at large, the Indian Photo Festival strives to promote the art of photography while addressing social issues through the medium.
Raghu Rai, Sebastiao Salgado, Roger Ballan, Nick Ut, Martin Parr, Reza Deghati, Carol Guzy, Ron Haviv, Stuart Franklin, Gauri Gill, Pep Bonet, Anush Babajanyan and Tasneem Alsultan are among the lensmen and lenswomen who have participated in the festival’s seven editions so far. Each year, the festival also presents the Indian Photo Festival Portrait Prize. Between editions, the organisers Light Craft Foundation run several projects, including a mentorship programme for young Indian photographers.
