Exhibit on view through March 29, 2013

Since the 1970s, 2,800 performer families have called New Delhi’s Kathputli Colony their home. Last year, the government issued relocation permits to the colony residents; the slum is to be bulldozed to make room for New Delhi’s first-ever skyscraper, The Raheja Phoenix. Cogan recently spent four months documenting this time of transition while working on the film Tomorrow We Disappear, to be released next year.

In his fifth exhibit opening at Sixth & I, the Emmy award-winning photographer showcases a visual journey through India’s last colony of magicians, acrobats, and puppeteers as part of FotoWeekDC’s 2012 festival. Experience the last remnants of this culture born out of folk art and molded by poverty.
