Coventry to Mumbai, the photographs of Masterji with Tarla Patel

This The Show Window: Mumbai instillation, produced with Tarla Patel showcases the photography of her father, Maganbhai Patel, a Gujarati Indian photographer who migrated to Coventry, UK in 1951. Often referred to as ‘Masterji’, Patel opened Master’s Art Studio in Coventry in 1969. 

By placing these photographs of the people Masterji photographed in the windows, and a portrait of Masterji himself, Tarla invites the viewer to reflect on the changing identities of Masterji’s subjects and to contemplate the stories to be told and the lives to be lived.
