[ZESTCaste] Photography exhibition on India’s Dalits opens in London

Photography exhibition on India's Dalits opens in London

St Paul's Cathedral is to host a rare and intimate series of portraits
of the lives of Indian Dalits in a photography exhibition by Marcus
Perkins, for Christian Solidarity Worldwide (CSW).

India's Dalits (previously known as "untouchables") are a people whose
history reverberates with oppression, exploitation and injustice.
Being Untouchable exposes the present-day impact of these centuries of
oppression, and explores how although "untouchability" was abolished
by India's Constitution, it continues to be practised today.

Three Meditative Eucharists will be held on Sundays during the
exhibition (19 and 26 June and 3 July). These will explore the theme
of untouchability and focus on the Dalits of India, the untouchable
within our own society, and ultimately the untouchable within

'Being Untouchable: an exhibition of photography by Marcus Perkins for
CSW' runs from Tuesday 14 June to Wednesday 6 July 2011 at St Paul's
Cathedral from 8.30am – 4pm. Normal admission charges apply.
