  • Neeta Madahar Bradford Fellowship in Photography 2008-2009 will include a selection of work by Neeta Madahar. Ten new photographs will be on display from her recent body of work Flora “a series of highly conceptual and stylised images exploring the dynamics of portraiture within the contexts of femininity, beauty and nature”, alongside a selection from the artist’s earlier works – Sustenance (2003), Falling (video and photographs, 2005), Cosmoses (2006 – 07) and Solstice (video, 2008)”. The project, which has been in development since 2004, marks the culmination of Madahar’s tenure as the 14th Bradford Fellow in Photography (2008/09). The award is a partnership between the Museum, the University of Bradford and Bradford College. The exhibition runs from 16 October 2009 – 21 February 2010 in Gallery One at the National Media Museum, Bradford. Entry is free. On 15 October, Madahar will be a guest panellist at Mediafest, the Museum’s annual industry conference, which this year is looking at women in the media.
