Overview

Images of India is a fundraising exhibition by local photographer Juliet Murray.

India is a land of contrasts. Poverty is significant, with one on 5 living in extreme poverty, without access to basic human needs. Of the poor, only 20% have access to toilets, 60% to electricity and 6% to running water.

On the flipside, India is a country that is immensely rich; in culture, spirituality and diversity. It is enchanting and beautiful place, overwhelming to the senses. I find it near impossible to describe in words, thus, best captured through a lens!

This fundraising exhibition aims to capture both the magnificence of this sacred country (in particular the people of India) whilst highlighting the issue of extreme poverty and struggles that the people face, in a compassionate and sensitive manner.

Proceeds from the exhibition will be donated to the Australian Friends of Asha, who work to support and raise awareness of the important work that is done by Asha India in tackling issues that keep slum dwellers trapped in poverty. Their programmes help slum residents gain access to healthcare, financial services and education, and make it possible for them to make long-term, positive changes to their lives. http://www.australianfriendsofashaslums.org.au/

Images of India opens on Friday 16th March at 6.30pm at the Art of Freo Gallery and runs Wednesday to Sunday 11-4pm until March 25th.
