The Andhra Pradesh Tourism Development Corporation, the Indian Council for Cultural Relations & the Alliance Francaise of Hyderabad, with the support of the French Embassy in India, are organizing a photo exhibition by Johann Rousselot called India Shining India Crying.

Rousselot discovered India during his press reportages and the BJP's campaign in 2004 'India Shining'. He discovered that India is caught between two realities - India shining, prosperous and glittering, versus India crying, desperate and underfed.

This exhibition is a committed illustration of the gap created by an unbalanced economic growth that struck the photographer when he travelled from Delhi to Orissa, Jharkhand and Chhattisgarh. Rousselot asserts that the instrument of progress is impatient and greedy. Like a steamroller, this unbridled development ignores the destructive consequences it delivers upon the poor. He has focused his illustration of India crying with the issue of minerals and its consequences for the life of tribes, explaining that this example is accurate as the need for minerals is endless.

From a prolonged exploration of the different urban, rural and social landscapes of the Indian society, he has assembled a collection of precise and well-composed images in which generosity of spirit, engagement and derision frequently vie for pride of place.
