Wildlife experts have emphasised that it s unrealistic to expect free ranging lions to adjust and live together in a small space. Since the protected area is at maximum capacity, it s only natural that they wander farther in search of territory. How then should humans deal with the increasing population of an endangered carnivore that needs almost 10 kg of meat every day? Do we suspend human development in the name of conservation; should we expect them to live in harmony with us in our high rise apartments?With a different take on harmonious coexistence, Stotra Chakrabarti, Post Doctoral Research Associate, University of Minnesota, says, It is not easy to live with a large carnivore in your backyard. Coexistence can vary from tolerance to co occurrence with grudges. He mentions that according to the 2015 lion census, the lion population grew by 126 percent outside the Gir Protected Area, concurrent to around a 19 percent growth in human population in Gujarat. A consistent growth in lion population would have serious implications for humans and lions, and the efforts to conserve the latter.

At the end of March 2020, as the COVID 19 global pandemic grew in scope and impact, gay men around the world were asked to submit self portraits that reflected their experience of the coronavirus lock down. As curators for the project, our objective was to have as broad and diverse a representation of this global experience as possible. Our hope was to share varied experiences across age, ethnicity, and culture.The call for submissions had a few stipulations. In all photos, the subject needed to be seated, the photos needed to be in portrait format at a 5x7 aspect ratio, and we wanted to avoid mirror selfies.

In that way, the photographer was more likely to consider the messaging and emotional content of the photograph, and how feelings of isolation and loneliness were impacting their lives during the pandemic. The aspect ratio and orientation were chosen for presentational purposes. As curators, we wanted to ensure that the images formed a collection and that changes in the physical dimensions and orientation would not detract from the collective message(s) contained within the collection.
