In December 1984, a gas leak at the Union Carbide Factory, now owned by Dow Chemicals, caused the death of thousands of inhabitants of Bhopal and incapacitated the living who have yet to be fully compensated. Photographer Pablo Bartholomew, then aged 29, who arrived at the scene recounts his experiences of what it was like covering the disaster and its aftermath.
Lunch will be provided.
Pablo’s photo exhibit, ‘Coded Elegance’ will be on display in the CGIS South Concourse, 1730 Cambridge Street, from Nov. 5 to Jan. 31, 2015.
With generous support from the Donald T. Regan Lecture Fund, the Arts Initiative at SAI brings experienced and emerging artists to Harvard whose work focus is on social issues related to South Asia.
