Nandita Raman: Cinema Playhouse

Carl Licata

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. Raman's 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 Built between 1930 and 1960, these theaters, brimming with eccentricity, have largely been replaced by generic multiplexes.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 and 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 13December 23, 2010 at the Center for Documentary Studies in Durham, NC.Please join us for the opening reception Thursday, September 23, 69pm.
