Sebastian Cortés’ series 'Sidhpur: Time Present Time Past' forms the first in-depth photographic exploration of the Bohra Islamic community in Sidhpur, a little-known small town in Gujarat. Chancing upon Sidhpur while on a commission for The Oberoi Magazine, Cortés was intrigued by its rich heritage and distinctive vernacular architecture. This collection demonstrates Cortés’ continuing interest in documenting and uncovering India’s more enigmatic facets, this time through careful photographic studies of the traditional habitats and domestic spaces of the Dawoodi Bohras, an elusive and veiled Islamic community.
Sebastian Cortés was born in New York and took up photography while at New York University film school where he studied and collaborated with many of the best names in the industry, shooting several short films. In 1985, he moved to Milan, Italy and started shooting fashion, travel and lifestyle photography assignments for many international magazines and commercial clients, including American Express, Condè Nast, Ermenegildo Zegna and more.
In 1996, Cortés produced, “Luoghi Poetici” Poetic Places - intimate, atmospheric portraits of major Italian poets in their homes. The book and the exhibition drew great critical acclaim and travelled to major Italian cities. In 2004, Cortés moved together with his family to India, where his award winning travel, lifestyle and fine art photography has been greatly appreciated. Garnering applause from noted artists, intellectuals and press, Cortés developed several book projects. Cortés lectures at the Sri Aurobindo Centre for Arts and Communication. His images are exhibited and reviewed widely in Europe and India.
