Paris Review – Garry Winogrand and the Art of the Opening, Richard B. Woodward

Photography turns one and all into fools, including—especially—artists like himself, eager to hunt life and trap as many of its fleeting variables as possible inside a 35 mm frame but doomed to return empty-handed far more often than not.

Well written in parts, beautifully visual, but something was lacking. It did not really excel. :-/

Book # 11 of 2014

Towards an Aesthetic of Dalit Literature by Sharankumar Limbale

Book #12 of 2014

Antarjanam - Memoirs of a Namboodiri Woman by Devaki Nilayamgode

I took up Limbale’s book in wake of the Navayana- Arundathi Roy controversy, and Dalit groups response to the essay, its tone, position and the justification of its inclusion in Babasaheb’s Annihilation of Caste.

In the middle of Limbale’s well-researched, and thought-provoking book I re-read Vijay Tendulkar's Kanyadaan. Oh! Tendulkar fails so miserably!!. An excellent analysis is here.

By accident, I got a copy of Antarjanam. Another example of a type of ‘caste’ writing and the contrasts it offered in the light of what Limbale says was illuminating.

i have this in B&W, but these colours were just too much!
