Anisha Baid MFA ’24 Publishes Essay in New Book ‘Good Morning’

Posted on September 25, 2023

MFA Candidate Anisha Baid wrote the essay for the new photo book “Good Morning,” published by independent press JOJO Books.

India’s smart technology revolution enabled the family WhatsApp group, a medium for daily digital connection across generations. It birthed a unique cultural phenomenon – the good morning forward, a feel-good visual image meant to affirm, uplift and convey positivity. “Good Morning” offers the now ubiquitous forward as a site of protest during a time of political distress and upheaval, as a space for citizens and artists to reclaim their voice. The book looks at a selection of images as they move from a restored archive of an Instagram account, compressed and decomposing in digital storage, to its recovery in printed form.
