A delightful, rare photo exhibition



‘Angel’s Arrival’, a work by photo artist Ashok Agarwala which will be on display during the week-long exhibition.

Leading pictorial photo artists of the country will exhibit their pictures at a week-long group exhibition opening at the All-India Fine Arts and Crafts Society gallery on Rafi Marg in the Capital this Saturday.

Organised by a few photo artists, the exhibition will feature photographs by seven photo artists from Lucknow, Chandigarh and Kolkata. Using specialised photographic techniques, they have expressed their philosophical thoughts.

One of the exhibitors, Benu Sen, has worked tirelessly for the promotion of photographic art in the country.

He is popularly called “the Living Legend of Indian Pictorial Photography”.

Retired from the Indian Museum as Chief Photographic Officer in 1991, Sen has written books in his field of work and also delivered talks at various Photographic Associations. In 2005, the Photographic Society of Pakistan adjudged him one of the six Indian legends in pictorial photography.

The soft-spoken Susanta Banerjee, who was vice-president of the Federation of Indian Photography, is also exhibiting his works at this show. He has written many articles in various photographic journals including the Royal Photographic Society of Great Britain.

An officer in the Reserve Bank of India, Adit Agarwala is co-author of two photographic books. He has been on the juries of quite a few national and international photographic salons.

Decorated with a number of photographic honours, Anil Risal Singh is Head of Photo Division at the National Research Laboratory for Conservation of Cultural Property in Lucknow.

A photo officer at Bokaro Steel Plant, Asit Kumar Ray’s works have been characterised by tonal simplicity.

An aircraft maintenance engineer by profession, Soumya Mukhopadhyay is now engaged in family export.

Higher Education Commissioner in the Haryana Government, V. S. Kundu has over 250 photographic acceptances to his credit both from national and international photographic salons.
