SINGH~Dayanita – Dream Villa
Artist: Dayanita Singh Publisher: Steidl, Göttingen Year: 2010 ISBN: 978-3-6521-985-5 136 pp., hardcover
Known for her photographs of lesser-known elements of Indian society, artist Dayanita Singh makes images that might depict anything from the life of a Delhi eunuch to those of upper-middleclass families.Her books, often published without text, allow her to experiment with different styles of sequencing and composing such photographs. In DreamVilla, Singh explores the ways in which the night transforms what seems ordinary by day into something disquieting and enigmatic; the series of color photographs illustrated in this book presents a landscape that exists asmuch in the artist’s imagination as it does in the real world. In search of thesemysterious nocturnal effects, Singh travels to many cities across India, never knowing where her “DreamVilla” or its shadowy inhabitants will present themselves.
