About the event
IFBE’s Independence Project kicks off on 15th August with a presentation by the award-winning photographer Rohit Chawla on ‘Explorations at the Crosshairs of Self and Society’ – this year’s theme for The Independence Project. The presentation takes a hard look at where photography meets journalism to create campaigns for change.

About the presentation: In this presentation, Rohit Chawla takes a hard look at merging photography and journalism to create campaigns for change. In a photographic world leaning widely towards pretence, his work is nude and nuanced. The presentation will involve a discussion of how photographs tell a story that represent a point of view as well as history. We explore how the right photograph can have the power to change the toughest thing in the world: the human mind.
