I categorized the intent of this project into primary and secondary goals. The primary goal was to trace the timeline of Mr. Satyan's six-decade-long photojournalistic journey, mapping his active years and exploring his influential role in Indian photojournalism, ultimately earning him the title of the father of Indian photojournalism. To accomplish this, my approach involved delving into the extensive collection of Mr. Satyan's photographs, newspaper articles, and magazines in which his work had been published. I undertook the task of interpreting each image individually as well as analyzing them collectively.
Additionally, the secondary objective of this project aimed to fulfill the fundamental expectations of the Museum of Art & Photography in Bengaluru, Karnataka, India, which sponsored the project. This involved meticulously digitizing, archiving, and cataloging the specific portion of the T.S. Satyan collection that was assigned to me. Moreover, I sought to disseminate these captivating images through a virtual exhibition, effectively combining history and technology to offer a unique and engaging experience.
