Maryam Jafri, Independence Days
In her artist book ‘Independence Days’, Maryam Jafri presents an expanded version of her photo installation, ‘Independence Day 1934–1975’ juxtaposing and arranging 234 photographs sourced over 10 years of research in 40 archives across Asia, Africa, and the Middle East, including many from rare and at-risk collections.
This is an investigation of the role played by photography in mid-twentieth century decolonization processes.
