For her third exhibition for CONTACT Photography Festival in Toronto, Anthea Baxter-Page seizes unique and meaningful moments from the flux of chaotic Indian life. Photojournalistic in style and nostalgic in feel, the resulting portraits and still life photographs seek to subvert any preconceived notions about the well-documented country. Many of the typical social and political identifiers are stripped, leaving the viewer to connect with the more humanist nature of the work. As an alert and sympathetic observer, ABP reveals her undeniable personal affection for her subjects in these quiet portraits. While not always performing for the camera, the subjects are aware of it, having granted their collaboration, and accepting the photographer as an active participant in their experience.
