       of a new generation,' an exhibition organised by the Getty
       Conservation Institute in collaboration with the Prince of
       Wales Museum of Western India in Mumbai, which opened at

520    In November 1995, Bombay's name was officially to Mumbai. 
       The local colour of India's most cosmopolitan city, Mumbai,
       derives from the mix of its inhabitants. The different 
       lifestyles and languages, creeds, customs, and cuisines of
       the Maharashtrians, Gujaratis, Parsis, Goans, Kannadis, 
       and Tamils who call this city home make for a specially 
       variegated social mosaic. The population spills out from 
       open coastlines and obscure alleyways onto the crowded 
       streets lined with colonial monuments and sleek 
       skyscrapers, creating an intense human element that is 
       distinctly Mumbai. But in this tangle of traditions old 
       and new, what constitutes a landmark? 
520 8  To get a fresh perspective, the Getty Conservation 
       Institute asked nine youths aged twelve to eighteen to 
       photograph what in their views qualified as landmarks of 
       their personal lives and neighbourhoods. Following the 
       success of similar initiatives in Los Angeles and Cape 
       Town, the youths have produced a visual narrative that 
       captures significant markers across the city. This is a 
       powerful, honest, profound, and witty commentary on the 
       small and the monumental, the intricate, the plain, the 
       sad, the strange, the funny, the enduring, and the 
       transitory in a dynamic urban setting today. More than a 
       book of photographs, Picture Mumbai: Landmarks of a New 
       Generation challenges us to reflect on how we ourselves 
       are marked by, and interpret, the environment in which we
