Homai Vyarawalla at NY Museum

Homai Vyarawalla, the petite sari-clad Parsi woman, became known for being the eyes of the nation, watching and capturing many great events and moments. The works of India’s first woman photojournalist, who died in January this year, have translated into three retrospectives over the last few years at home. Now, a first for her legacy, an ongoing exhibition at Rubin Museum of Art, New York, called “Candid: The Lens and Life of Homai Vyarawalla” pays tribute to her works from post-Independence India. The exhibition allows limited selection of Vyarawalla’s original prints — about 50 of them — along with other documents and newspaper cuttings. The exhibition, accompanied by 30-minute gallery tours, is on till January 14, 2013.
