Goethe Institut / Max Mueller Bhavan Mumbai is pleased to pr esent Calcutta: Chitpur Road Neighborhoods\, a presentation of photographs by twenty one German photographers\, under the guidance of Peter Bialobrzes ki. This body of work is unique in its methodology as its main aim was to d evelop a coherent\, unified approach towards the subject. It challenged tra ditional ideas associated with originality and aimed at creating a more uni versal aesthetic of photography shared by these 21 photographers. \; Th is reversal of thinking was in itself a challenge\, and it was absolutely i mportant to overcome it in order for the project to be a success. The parti cipants worked in groups and took turns to direct the shoots. Their aim was to &ldquo\;A good picture a day&rdquo\;.  \;They worked under the coll ective name:  \;&lsquo\;A Kolkata Heritage Photo Project&rsquo\;\, and are the joint authors of this body of work.

During the 19th cent ury\, Kolkata was one of the most economically affluent cities in India und er the British\, the city elites demonstrated their affluence by building h uge palaces in a unique mix of traditional Moghul architecture with classic al and Victorian elements. Today\, the neighbourhoods around the historical axis of Chitpur road in North Kolkata\, still exhibit the remnants of this architecture style. Though decaying as architecture monuments\, they still house a vibrant community. The project aimed at capturing these two extrem ities of the area\, without deviating from their set approach.

I n 2008\, Hatje Cantz published the book &lsquo\;Calcutta: Chitpur Road Neig hborhoods&rsquo\;\, based on this project. Though all the 21 photographers were students of Peter Bialobrzeski at the University of Arts Bremen in 200 6\, today they are all individual professional photographers. The Kolkata H eritage Project consists of Claudia Aguilar\, Johanna Ahlert\, Bjö\;rn Behrens\, Jö\;rg Brü\;ggemann\, Tine Casper\, Franziska von den Dri esch\, Anja Engelke\, Tobias Gratz\, Christian Gü\;ssow\, Dö\;rte H aupt\, André\; Hemstedt\, Manja Herrmann\, Torben Hö\;ke\, Britta Isenrath\, Joanna Kosowska\, Jø\;rgen Kube\, Pia Pollmanns\, Silke S chmidt\, Inga Seevers\, Marion Ü\;dema\, Sandy Volz.
