Jonbeel, a photobook, is about a fair organized by the Tiwa community, in which the experience of being at a particular space, as an event in the history of time has been recreated employing a tour de photograph. In the process, it has been intended to establish an emotional connection between the viewer and the art, so as to eventually transport the former from the realm of the normal to an overwhelming sphere of instinct and empathic vibrations. The way a photograph is presented can influence the perception of the viewer. While the emotional effect in a documentary image is absorbed but not dwelt upon in elaborate terms, the presentation of the same image in the form of art makes the artist communicate with the viewer in a way that it elicits a multiplicity of response from the latter. All the same, the artist’s views and interpretations, as evident from the presentation itself, serve to form a veritable vehicle for deciphering the layers of meaning implicit in the image, thereby investing the work itself with extended meaning and import. Jonbeel is presented to viewers as a conduit between art, life and interpretation. This report includes an introduction to the theme, literature review, methodology followed for the final product, learning and experience and future scope of work
