After our successful edition dedicated to the transgender community in India, we presented our latest edition of ‘The Kitab – India’s first photobook festival’ in the Almora region with a special exhibition dedicated to ‘Women in the Himalayas’.

Our primary mission was to inspire the local community and elevate the voices of women through powerful and impactful photography in the book format. Our festival was an interesting mix of powerful visual stories and photobooks that were thought-provoking and enriching, and that encourage global awareness and personal growth.

The only one of its kind in South-Asia, the three-day long photobook festival happened from 21st-23rd September 2018 in Almora region, showcasing the works of photographers from more than 30 countries. The Kitab presented photobooks on different subjects that inspire curiosity, educate, entertain, and stimulate conversation amongst the local communities.
