100 Seconds

100 Seconds. is a personal and intimate look at the photographer’s experience of the COVID-19 pandemic. Through the juxtaposition of archival footage of world news and photographs of microscopic landscapes, Rohit Saha seeks to capture the “chaos of our time.”

“COVID-19 gave me a reality check. It made me realize how we are all connected. The screen gave me chills. Made me more vulnerable and anxious. Sitting in a room in Bombay, India, I saw similar visual patterns in the microscopic cosmos of my room and the world I live in. With this work, I wanted to make sense of the chaos that has been happening in my head due to all the collective visual imagery which keeps coming back to me, when I close my eyes,” says the photographer.

Rohit Saha is a visual artist from Calcutta, India. He uses photography, illustration, and animation to tell stories about communities, landscapes and political phenomena in different parts of India.
