The Lighthouse is a space devoted to initiatives in the visual arts, focused primarily on photography.


Through our residencies, workshops, publications, exhibitions and bookstore, we hope to create a community that can share and grow together. We are building platforms for collaboration and exchange; and are constantly looking for new ways to engage with the medium.


Located in Calcutta, a city with a long history in the visual arts, the Lighthouse brings a wider international photographic community into direct communication with the Indian audience.


Above all, The Lighthouse seeks to create a community of photographic artists from India and beyond, who can share, collaborate and develop together.
