BOMBAY, Singh’s first show with Howard Greenberg Gallery, will present 27 images that expose the complexities of the city, moving from unvarnished scenes of poverty to utter opulence. Using a handheld camera with color slide film, he wandered through the city of Bombay recording often intimate moments. An exhibition of street photography by Raghubir Singh, considered India’s greatest photographer, will be on view at Howard Greenberg Gallery from October 26 – December 9, 2017. Pulsating with dramatic compositions and his characteristically controlled use of color, BOMBAY focuses on one of the artist’s most significant body of work. Made in the early 1990s, it led to his book Bombay: Gateway of India, Aperture, 1994. The exhibition coincides with a retrospective at the Met Breuer entitled Modernism on the Ganges: Raghubir Singh Photographs.
