“Refocusing the Lens: Pranlal Patel’s Photographs of Women at Work in Ahmedabad” opens on Saturday, Feb. 1. Admission to the opening reception at 4 p.m. and the exhibition is free.

“Refocusing the Lens: Pranlal Patel’s Photographs of Women at Work in Ahmedabad” features images depicting women at work in the homes, neighborhoods and markets of Ahmedabad, India, in 1937. The photographer, Pranlal Patel, died this January at the age of 104 in Ahmedabad. His images reveal a bit about the history of Indian women, particularly members of the working class, as workforce participants in early 20th century. Patel’s approach was noteworthy because he shot in the field rather than in the studio; the resulting images offer an unprecedented documentary view of Indian society. The show is co-curated by Associate Professor of History Lisa Trivedi, who met Patel and his family as a doctoral student two decades ago, and Assistant Professor of Photography Robert Knight.
