Every picture tells a story
An interactive talk by Vikas Dilawari is an ode to Foy Nissen
The city is no stranger to the works of Foy Nissen, a pioneer in documenting Bombay’s architecture, who was associated with the city’s heritage movement. As a homage to him, conservation architect Vikas Dilawari is hosting a talk that will discuss Nissen’s work. Dilawari himself shares a close relationship with Nissen, and describes him as his mentor who imbued the architect with passion and knowledge, and led him on a discovery of the city’s rich architecture. The event is a part of Jehangir Nicholson Art Foundation’s ongoing exhibition Foy Nissen’s Bombay, which features the photographer’s work.
Kamini Sawhney, curator of the exhibition at JNAF, says, “Remembering Foy is an ode to a lensman who captured the soul of this city. His photographs provide a precious archive of Mumbai’s unique architecture that we are gradually losing in the battle for space and the race to modernisation.”
On: June 12, 6 pm
At: Jehangir Nicholson Gallery, 159-161, Mahatma Gandhi Road, Fort.
