Photo exhibition on ‘Time Present Time Past’ of Bohra community

Amethyst will showcase an exhibition titled Sidhpur: Time Present Time Past by ace artist Sebastian Cortés.

The exhibition is the first in-depth photographic exploration of the Bohra Islamic community in Sidhpur, a little-known, small town in Gujarat.


The exhibition is a culmination of Cortés intrigue with the rich heritage and distinctive vernacular architecture. Building on the ideas explored in his previous book, Pondicherry, this exhibition demonstrates Cortes’ continuing interest in geography, memory and biography — this time through careful photographic studies of the traditional habitats and domestic spaces of the Dawoodi Bohras, an elusive and veiled Islamic community.

Venue: Amethyst

Time: 11 am to 7.30 pm

Date: Till 31 January
