Indian Faces & Scenes - Malachi O'Doherty
The Market Place Theatre
Malachi O'Doherty travelled round the north of India with a camera, stopping to talk to people, snapping images of strangers, from the beggar on the street in Delhi to the labourer in Kolkata and the farmer in the Punjab.
The powerful impression of these pictures is of faces filled with character, faces sculpted by climate, hard living and deep reflection.
Malachi O'Doherty is a writer, broadcaster and photographer living in Belfast. His books cover works of memoir and discussions on politics and culture. He is the author of ‘Fifty Years On’, published this year by Atlantic Books and of a novel to be published early next year by Merrion Press. Dr O'Doherty is a current recipient of a Major Artist award from the Arts Council of Northern Ireland. This award funded his trip to India for research for another book and the photographs featured in this exhibition are a by-product of that research.
