Great Masters of Indian Classical Music by Raghu Rai

Till 8 April 2007 at The Jendela, Esplanade Theatres on the Bay.

I think it is probably hard not to notice that there is the Music Mosaic Festival going on at The Esplanade if you live in Singapore. And it is a great music festival. I have enjoyed Yo La Tengo and The Album Leaf. But there is a photographic gem that may have slipped pass your attention. Magnum photographer Raghu Rai, has an exhibition of Indian Musicians on. I was there tonight looking at the exhibition before my concert, and it really blew me away. Raghu Rai's work is technically understated. All of it was in black and white. But Rai's eye for moments and his use of framing is masterly. His images of musicians immersed in their music is simply beautiful. And the black and white prints are glorious. If you love black and white photography and moments of drama captured on film, you should not miss this exhibition.
