In AAM AASTHA, internationally renowned photographer Charles Fréger continues to spotlight global traditions and cultures by celebrating the powerful visual aspects of Indian folk culture and religious ritual. India is home to a myriad of local traditions, legends, and religions, each with their own festivals, rites, and ceremonies. Celebrations burst with vivid colors and often wildly exuberant costumes, some representing gods and goddesses, others legendary heroes from Sanskrit epics such as the Mahabharata and the Ramayana.

This spectacular gathering of warrior figures, deities, musicians,epic characters, and their avatars is accompanied by texts by novelist and journalist Anuradha Roy and philosopher and critic Catherine Clément, who contextualize the events, as well as descriptions of individual costumes, masks, and rituals by Kuhu Kopariha.
