Daylight Multimedia and the Center for Documentary Studies are proud to present the work of Nandita Raman, the winner of the first annual Daylight! CDS Photo Awards.
Ramans Cinema Playhouse series focuses on the interiors of decaying theaters in India. Built between 1930 and 1960, these theaters, brimming with eccentricity, have largely been replaced by generic multiplexes.Through her quiet arid beautiful images, Raman explores her childhood memories and the idiosyncrasies of the Golden Age of Bollywood. As the winner of the Project Prize, Nandita Raman’s work will be on view from September 13-December 23,2010 at the Center for Documentary Studies in Durham, NC.
Also on display will be the work of Elizabeth Moreno, winner of the Works-in-Process Prize, and Jurors’ Pick Winners: Erica Allen, Rachel Barrett, Priya Kimbli, Jan Lieski, Paula McCartney, Martin Roemers, Daniel Stier, and Monika Sziladi.
