Senior Lecturer Caroline Molloy recently participated in the JAIPUR photo festival. Jaipur photo festival was an open air photography festival that brought together international artists who responded to the theme of photography and wanderlust. The contributing artists’ work was exhibited around the pink city for the duration of the festival.
Caroline exhibited a selection of her body of work ‘Untouched Copy’, which documented the decline of popularity of traditional analogue photographic studios in Fort Cochin. As part of the festival she also delivered a paper ‘Studio Cartographies: Auto-ethnography as a research methodology’, during which she presented a broader selection of ‘Untouched Copy’ and ‘the Deportment Guide’. She also showed a research film and reflected on her ethnographic research process.
The festival was also featured in the March issue of The British Journal of Photography.
