Habitat Photosphere, by the India Habitat Centre, is the first biennial photo-festival in the world that brings together the spheres of photography and sustainability through a fellowship, mentorship, exhibitions, workshops, talks and more.

Sustainable Development is the grand narrative of the festival, which strings together Photography and Sustainable Development into the holistic Photosphere. The emphasis of the festival is on mapping new footprints of the photo language, experimental language, to work as a pioneer inventing new languages of photo representation ensuring that the ultimate artwork does not bear an activist slant, look, presentation or texture to it.
