Who we are
‘Studio Goppo’, as we have named it, is an initiative towards developing a space for enhancing the understanding of historical photography practice primarily. ‘Goppo’ is a Bengali word, means small stories which further defines the purpose behind establishing this studio that is to bring together all those small stories, ideas, practices and research around the world of photography. Hence it consequentially invites the story around memory, evidence, identity, history of culture, and so on.
Although the studio is dedicated to photographic practices but our approach in developing it would be multidisciplinary. We believe that each and every subject we specialized is interwoven. They get a dynamic, flourishing stance only when there is multidisciplinary outlook. Our studio would enhance and achieve from the collaboration of various opinions, inventions and perceptions.
The studio welcomes Artist, Art historians, people working with social history, doing research on 19th century photography, working with photographic chemistry, and anyone who is interested to learn or explore handmade photography.
