If we’ve got our sums right, at around midday tomorrow GMT it will be tea time in India and Blindboys’ BLOWUP IN BOMBAY will be well underway. Not that we’re excited or anything…

As we can’t be there we’ve been following developments on the internets as best we can. Just as we were discovering that Google Streetview hasn’t covered India yet, so we couldn’t go on a virtual walkaround of the exhibition site (boo Google, booooo!), Akshay posted some ‘before’ images on Facebook – which give a brilliant taste of the area where BLOWUP will be placed tomorrow, plus they’re just gorgeous in and of themselves (so I hope he doesn’t mind us lifting one for here).

The line up of participating photographers was announced the other day and it looks great.

INDIA – Bharat Sikka, Adrian Fisk, Akshay Mahajan, Kaushik Ramaswamy, Meena Kadri, Puneet Rakheja, Prarthna Singh, Tunali Mukherjee, Natasha Hemrajani, Kapil Das, Munsif Mollu, Tenzin Dakpa, Sheetal Malhar, Ishan Tankha, Manu Joseph, Vidisha Saini, Zishaan Akbar Latif, and Varun Dutt.

INTERNATIONALCiara Leeming (UK), Hongtao Zhong (CHINA), Zhou Lvcun (CHINA), plus Gareth Philips, Brandon Thibodeaux, Julius Metoyer, and Ying Ang from the MJR collective in America.

Oh, and us. Hurray! Plus probably quite a few other photogs who also turn up on the day (wish we could!).

BLOWUP IN BOMBAY: 4pm – 8pm Saturday 22nd May 2010, behind the fabulously named Mehboob Studios in Bandra (beginning at the intersection of Varoda Road and Hill Road – map here, and more info at Blindboys’ Facebook page).
