Briana Blasko will share her photographic journey about the making of her latest book,
Within Without: The Path of the Yogi. Over a period of four years she travelled across India
and Nepal, observing the lives of practising Jains, Buddhists, Sufis and Hindus, and a Catholic
priest. Although the photographs reflect a belonging to specific religions, this work is not
intended to be about religion; rather, it aims to show the interconnectedness of the spiritual life.
Briana Blasko is a San Francisco born portrait photographer who shares her time between India and California. Prior to 2008, she lived in New York for twelve years and photographed contemporary dance for the New York Times. For the past ten years, she has been quietly crisscrossing the Indian subcontinent to document the country’s rich traditions of textiles and dance and the interplay between the two. Her work has culminated in the production of a series of photographic works, including Dance of the Weave and Within Without: The Path of the Yogi. Within Without: The Path of the Yogi was published by HarperCollins India in December 2017. It was released with an exhibition at the Vadehra Art Gallery, New Delhi.
**Briana will also be showing selected prints from the book.
***The book discussion will be followed by a reception with wine and cheese.***
