Faces do the talking here

Staff Reporter



EXPRESSIONS:Around 80 photographs were on display at the exhibition in Bangalore.

BANGALORE: A wide array of emotions was the imprint of Faces, a photography exhibition held at the Bharatiya Vidya Bhavan in the city. Around 80 photographs of faces of people of different ages and nationalities were captured by members of the Youth Photographic Society and exhibited on the occasion of World Photography Day on August 19. This was the 11 {+t} {+h} edition of the exhibition.

The innocence in a baby's smile, the curiosity of an old woman, the grit of a weather-beaten farmer and the repose of a woman in the sunset of her life were some of the moods captured by the 25-odd members of the society.

Arresting shots of animals and birds were also included.

One of the star attractions at the event was the camera collection of K.P. Thomas . About 90 picked from his vast collection, some dating back to 1902, were on show.

Later, some of the best photographers and philanthropists were felicitated.

This year, S.G. Neginal, wildlife photographer and former Conservator of Forests, was honoured for his contribution to the field.

Four members of the society who have achieved international distinction were also awarded.
