In the profound words, ॥अतिथि देवों भव:॥, which translate to “The guest is God,” India has always exemplified an unparalleled hospitality and warmth towards its visitors. Rooted in this enriching philosophy, we introduce a unique venture, a journey of exploration and discovery, spearheaded by the spirited Isabelle Walker from Landshut University, Germany.
Isabelle is not just a student; she embodies the spirit of a learner who transcends geographical boundaries to immerse herself in the world’s rich cultural mosaic. Specializing in multicultural discipline and new media, Isabelle has embarked on an insightful project focusing on Indian multicultural living through an anthropological lens. Every society, community, and individual narrates a distinct story, brimming with traditions, rituals, and values that have been carried forward through generations. Isabelle aims to become a conduit for these narratives, echoing the untold stories to a global audience.
Uttarakhand, Uttar Pradesh, Rajasthan, Delhi, Haryana, and Maharashtra – each state a treasure trove of distinct cultures, heritage, arts, and philosophy. The journey promises to be a soul-stirring odyssey, unravelling the myriad shades of Indian ethnicity. Through her lens, witness the vibrancy of rituals, the profoundness of philosophical insights, the artistic allure of traditional art forms, and the heavenly delight of Indian cuisine. Every alley, every village, every city is a canvas where life paints its most enchanting images.
The Indian Institute of Photography (IIP) has always been a beacon of cultural exchange. It has woven an intricate tapestry that mirrors the global village, drawing threads from state to state collaborations, people-to-people connect, and intra-institutional levels. It is a realm where learning is not confined to classrooms but extends beyond, reaching the soul of diverse communities.
We extend our heartfelt gratitude to Professor Dr. Maja Jerrentrup (@jamari_lior), an IIP mentor whose relentless efforts have bridged the gap between visions and reality. Under her esteemed guidance, the expedition is not just a project but a symphony of shared learning, a dance of diverse souls, and a mural of united aspirations.
