A Mother’s Journey: Photographs from Orissa, India, by Tara Colburn

December 7, 2003 to February 29, 2004

This extraordinary record of daily life and family relationships among peoples of Orissa, India, was taken by photographer Tara Colburn, during a search for her son who had joined the International Society for Krishna Consciousness. In the course of her travels, Colburn fell in love with India and documented some of its least-known and most rarely photographed regions. This exhibition presents a selection of the remarkable images that Colburn, a Croatian-born Angelino, took over the course of the ten years preceding her death in 2003. Approximately fifty of these photographs will be mounted in the Museum’s Goldenberg Galleria.
