£300.00

These images were taken in 2016 on a visit to the Neelam Cinema in Chandigarh India. I’d long heard there were 2 Corbusier designed cinemas but couldn’t find images of either . Indeed it wasn’t clear If they were actually still open  Over the years It had become somewhat of an quest for me and was delighted  finding the  cinema was indeed still open.  The manager seemed genuinely baffled but flattered I wanted to take pictures and gave permission on the condition that I could only shoot Interiors during the 20m change over between films ,Indian films are very long so I was there all day I remember ever min like it was yesterday. This image won the Architectural photograph of the year India 2017 and has been exhibited and prints continue to be collected worldwide

The Neelam Cinema are part of an ongoing Series exploring the Psychogeography of Architectural environments 

The Print is offered as part of the affordable range
