Utopia Planitia 2010-2020:

A Decade of Design, Teaching, and Photographic Exploration in the Age of Social Media

McGill University

Peter Guo-hua Fu School of Architecture

Montreal, Quebec
February 2020

Using a 2” x 2” format to represent the dimensions of contemporary smart phone screens and traditional slide mounts, this exhibition presented 500 images that chronicled Balbahadur’s photographic explorations in design, teaching, music, sport, travel, and portraiture from 2010-2020.  With this catalogue of imagery as a touchstone, the exhibition raises questions about the ways in which we engage with the social medium that he characterizes as UTOPIA PLANITIA, an idealized plane of human existence that serves as a mirror to our lives, adventures, dreams, and memories.

Photographic Reflections on Mies van der Rohe

Papeterie Nota Bene

Montreal, Quebec
March-September 2019

For Nota Bene’s yearlong commemoration of the Bauhaus 100th anniversary, Balbahadur was invited to exhibit a series of his photographs of the work of Ludwig Mies van der Rohe taken between 2011 and 2018 in Montreal, Chicago, and Barcelona.  The selection of images depicted Mies’ extraordinary use of space, materials, textures, thresholds, reflections, and detailing, emphasizing connections through his prolific and influential body of work.


This photographic exhibition was the longest running show in the history of Nota Bene.
