Espacio Nudage – Spain

I am currently in Mumbai, India. This time I am here sooner than I expected to be and the weather is more than perfect! Mumbai for those of you who don’t know is the city I was born and raised in … all my updates from here on will be from India. I am scheduled to return to the states on Feb 12th in order to attend the closing of my solo show in Los Angeles. You can read more about it on this link. If you live in LA and read this blog, please stop in and say hello at Kopeikin Gallery.

So about a month ago I got an email from Mike Kent who was in charge of coordinating the photo entries for Espacio Nudage. I had never heard of this event before but I was invited to submit my work for the contemporary photography section. This is the first time this event is being held in the city of Santader, Spain. A gorgeous city with views of the mountains and bays and a incredible spanish history in addition! The event was being sponsored by the council of culture and tourism and I submitted my work and waited patiently while I browsed images of Santander Spain, it’s a gorgeous place, here are some images below to give you a sense of the landscape and some old Spanish architecture there.



I just heard back and was selected as one of ten photographers from several entries and was informed that I will be flown in and put up so I could attend the exhibition and see my work in a brand new country. I am humbled beyond words and am so glad to have gotten the opportunity. A shout out to Mike kent for being so easy to work with and I can hardly wait until I set foot on a totally different piece of the planet. I don’t speak spanish but hope to pick up a little bit while I am there. I will keep you posted about the show and other details!

    Hello Manjari!

    This is truly awesome. I found your blog on google trying to figure some things out regarding Nudage, in Santander. I am also another artist who was selected to show there and am a grad student at Cranbrook Academy of Art in Michigan, USA. It is weird how things pan out, because, your solo show at Kopeikin Gallery is going to be visited by me and the other students when we visit Los Angeles in Mid January.
    I first came across your work on FlakPhoto.com- truly amazing, inspiring work. Then I noticed it on the Nudage website, and I thought,”That’d be sweet If I could show with Manjari Sharma.”
    I am trying to clarify some things with Mike, by email.

    Best,
    Joe Sobel
