As a young athlete, her daughter often braved competitions and injuries. Noida-based photographer Sonia Kapoor has captured this perseverance of sportspeople in her work Life Must Go On and The World is Upside Down. The latter is a photograph of a high-jump event.
Kapoor wanted to take the photo from the participant’s point of view and so, she focused on the bar and turned the photo upside-down to show the participant mid-jump and his unwavering focus; the world as he sees it at that moment. Kapoor’s photographs at the exhibition “On joue sur la Terr (The World is the Playground)” at Alliance Francaise Delhi were among the few to focus on pain, strife and determination of playtime activities.

The exhibition is a display of the best 36 photographs (by 20 artists) selected from a photography competition held in September 2013, which showcases the playful aspects of different cultures and societies and the evolution of these customs around the world.
The winning photo by businessman Arindam Dutta from Kolkata turns a common field into a photo displaying the beauty and sheer joy of three boys enjoying a water fight. The ordinary gets highlighted in Delhi student Anant Gupta’s semi black-and-white photo. It has a little girl on a crowded beach, holding brightly-coloured balloons.
The exhibition will be on display at Alliance Francaise de Delhi until May 21. Contact: 43500200
