Metabolism of Culture
Photo Mail presents a panoramic view of the art of photography’s interaction and interrelation with other art mediums such as literature
architecture, and other visual media. Metabolism of Culture is socio-anthropological reading of Photographer Abul Kalam Azad‘s Men of Pukar photo-series which is the third part of his ongoing five-part series titled Story of Love, Desire & Agony that creates meta-conceptual parallel visuals of Classical Tamil epic tragedy Cilappathikaram. In MoC the author seeks to understand the origins of “Culture” and the multi-fold assimilation
and manifestation of identity, territory, and gender.
