Photojournalist Kamran Yousuf Released On Bail
Kamran Yousuf, a freelance photojournalist from Kashmir, was granted bail on March 12, by the Delhi court. He was released the next day. Yousuf was apprehended by the Jammu and Kashmir police on September 4, 2017. The next day he was turned over to the National Investigative Agency (NIA). In January 2018, a 13,000 pages chargesheet was filed against him by the NIA, where he was accused of alleged sedition, terror funding, stone-pelting, and involvement with Hafiz Saeed and Syed Salauddin. Furthermore, the media was also accused for the current situation of the valley. However, during the trial, NIA was unable to present any strong evidence against him in court. After 6 months of detainment, Yousuf said, “I don’t want to see it (jail) ever again. I feel this is all a dream.”
1 + 1 = 1 Million – Vito Schnabel Gallery, St. Moritz
From February 15 to March 11, 2018, Vito Schnabel Gallery presented 1 + 1 = 1 Million, an exhibition curated by artist Tom Sachs to spotlight American conceptual artist Sol LeWitt’s significant works. Through a largescale wall drawing from 1978 and 19 luminous framed works on paper beginning from the 1970s, Sachs drew visitors into LeWitt’s careerlong exploration of authorship and the means by which it can be defined. The exhibition focused on three of the thirty-five statements from LeWitt’s 1969 Sentences on Conceptual Art, highlighting the ineffably poetic outcome of pursuing these ideas to their logical extreme.
Maganbhai Patel, Known for his Studio Portraits, Passes Away
Maganbhai Patel passed away on 11 February in England. He was 95. He arrived in Coventry, from India, in 1951, and spent his initial years in shared housing, where he mingled with other immigrants. He found work at General Electric, where he was a member of their photographic society. Having already dabbled in photography when he was in India, Patel took photography classes in England. It was during this time that he began receiving assignments to photograph weddings and other events. Eventually, he quit his job to pursue photography full-time. Soon, he opened his own studio, close to home, where he photographed anybody who came in looking to have a portrait made of themselves. These individuals were mostly immigrants like him, hoping to get a passport picture made or to send photographs back home. At 94, his work came into the limelight, when his daughter showcased his work in a local exhibition group. “His work is of huge signifi cance not just for Coventry but the UK because it’s a window into the lives of people as they arrived here and the image they wanted to send home,” says Jason Tilley, curator of Photo Archive Miners.
