Dayanita Singh: Dancing with My Camera

Accompanying Singh’s first touring retrospective, this survey includes previously unseen early works, favorite series and new montages

The internationally acclaimed photographer Dayanita Singh often describes herself as a “book artist.” Accordingly, Singh was closely involved in the making of this magnificent exhibition catalog, which accompanies a major touring retrospective of Singh’s work, curated by Stephanie Rosenthal for the Gropius Bau.
The most comprehensive publication yet published on Singh’s photographic art, it includes a series of long-form and short-form scholarly essays, full-color reproductions and installation images. The texts situate Singh’s work in relation to topics such as Indian classical music, photographic lineages and traditions, conceptions of the archive, choreography and the economies of reproduction.
Presenting every important phase in the photographer’s oeuvre, Dancing with My Camera also enters Singh’s archive to include never-before-seen early works from the 1980s, a new series of montages and the works Let’s See, Museum of Chance, Museum of Shedding, I Am as I Am, Go Away Closer and Box 507, among others.
Dayanita Singh (born 1961) is one of today’s most important photographers. Her solo exhibitions have been held at MMK, Frankfurt; Hayward Gallery, London; Hamburger Bahnhof, Berlin; and the Art Institute of Chicago.

PRAISE AND REVIEWS

Los Angeles Review of Books

The book travels from works of touching gestures that emphasize a poetic dexterity—hands and limbs dominate the composition and choreography of the photographs—to a more explicit experimentation with the book form as art or artistic structure.

A comprehensive new survey on Dayanita Singh

A comprehensive new survey on Dayanita Singh

“Go Away Closer” (2007) is reproduced from Dayanita Singh: Dancing with My Camera, the exhibition catalog to the 2022 Hasselblad Award winner’s first touring retrospective. Including previously unseen early works, favorite series and new montages, this 248-page survey was made in collaboration with Singh, who considers herself not just a photographer but a book artist. “The exhibition catalogue includes essays by Teju Cole and Stephanie Rosenthal, among others, and a ‘book timeline’ of the artist’s engagement with books as an art form,” the Los Angeles Review of Books writes. “The book travels from works of touching gestures that emphasize a poetic dexterity—hands and limbs dominate the composition and choreography of the photographs—to a more explicit experimentation with the book form as art or artistic structure.” continue to blog
