Parsis-The Old, The New and The Unexpected
Archival and studio photography helped capture the essence of late nineteenth and early twentieth century Parsi community, contemporary photography reveals new presentations of self amidst the shifting narratives around Parsi identity. Playful and irreverent self portraits challenge traditional stereotypes of Parsi identity, highlighting themes of memory and heritage with humor and levity, while traditional portraits of the community refer to history and tradition. Juxtaposing these realities, the exhibition aims to take the viewers on a journey from the past to the present whilst noting the ways in which Parsi identity has evolved over time.
The curator of this pictorial perspective Sarica Balsari will take us through the decades and share some stories.
