    Sunday, September 16, 2018

This is related to a phenomenon called Picture Superiority Effect wherein images are more likely to be remembered than words. It is curious then to explore the works of the artist-photographer Jean-Marc Godès whose entire artistic research is dedicated to the […]

    French Seascapes at AF Bangalore

    Thursday, September 13, 2018

    The French novelist Gustave Flaubert reportedly said that travelling makes one modest as it makes people realise the tiny place they occupy in the world. Indeed, we are often told that voyages are not really about the destination but about the journey itself. On a material level, this journey might be about external landscapes but […]

    Discussing Culture at AF Kathmandu
