There are not many galleries in the world which work solely with photography, Tasveer Gallery is one of them. Also Tasveer is the only member gallery from South Asia to be a part of the Association of International Photography Art Dealers (AIPAD) – an international organisation dedicated to creating and maintaining high standards in the business of exhibiting, buying and selling photographs as art.

Established in 2006, Tasveer began as the first pan-Indian gallery dedicated exclusively to photography, founded by Abhishek Poddar, Shalini Gupta and Naveen Kishore. The gallery is now the premiere photography venue in India, and produces an extensive exhibitions programme each year that showcases previously unpublished work alongside historically significant collections of photographs.

It is interesting that apart from displaying only Indian photographers Tasveer also offers an amazing selection of international artists, who either lived in India, have strong ties to the country or whose artworks just perfectly fit in with the local ambiance.
