Tastes of India 

Two artists offer two different views of the Asian nation.

Herbert Ascherman Jr. and Unni Krishnan Pulikkal, the two photographers featured in Interesting Faces, Colorful Wings, have one thing in common: Kerala. Clevelander Ascherman visited the Indian city that’s the focus of the new exhibit (which opens at the Museum of Natural History today) twice over the past two years; Pulikkal was born there and works there as a doctor. Their work couldn’t be more different. Ascherman’s black-and-white portraits of people and places feel claustrophobic, as if the heart of the big country beats in one congested spot. Pulikkal’s colorful pics, however, burst with wide-open grandeur and a sense of vastness. It’s almost as if two separate, and completely disparate, regions exist.
