New Delhi Police Manhandles Photojournalist
Anushree Fadnavis, a photojournalist with Hindustan Times, was physically assaulted by the Delhi police along with two other reporters, while covering a march by Jawaharlal Nehru University (JNU) students and teachers to Parliament to urge to meet several demands including academic freedom on March 23. The police tried to stop the march near the Safdarjung flyover with a lathi charge, and used water cannons on the marchers, as well as the journalists. After ceasing the use of water cannons, Vidyadhar Singh, Delhi Cantonment station house officer, attacked the journalists in the service lane of Brigadier Hoshiar Singh Marg. Fadnavis was photographing a student being kicked on the ground when female officers converged on her and snatched away her camera. A video capturing the struggle was uploaded online, after which the police apologised. They also suspended a woman constable and a male head constable. It has been noted by many that the police’s aggressiveness towards journalists has increased in recent times.
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.
