Wide Angle 2007, an initiative by B'lore Based Shutterbugs...
I don't know why but I like this phrase 'Less is More'. Some people have it in them, the ability to reach people, to get through, to communicate, to start a discourse with some things very subtle. Something as elusive as the click of a camera.
They reach past the outer layers into the gut of our humanity to grab us. Quickly and clearly, their depictions say life is simple and easy, nature is my living room, children are innocent, sometimes life can be fragile, and emotions are corpuscles of life. And the best part is they say it equally to men and women of different classes and cultures, dil se and bindaas dil khol ke. Their pictures attract us like magnets, the image on the print speaks more than what a page of writing or publishing can convey.
So what is this magic, exactly?
Few of Bangalore based shutterbugs and photo-enthusiasts are exhibiting their works and displaying their imagery on September 7,8 and 9 at the Karnataka Chitrakala Parishad , Bangalore.
Ultimately, this is a treasure trove for any one who loves photography, and presents the extraordinary variety, breadth and idiosyncratic gestures. Just a peek into the works of these enthusiasts: Nishant, Shankar, Venkatesh and Anita.
The exhibition runs for 3 days and the motive behind this exhibition is to communicate to the common people in the simplest way. Besides, it is also a sincere attempt to support a cause. To raise funds for a benificiary - Jagruthi - a Bangalore based voluntary organisation working with children affected with AIDs. Pixetra has extended its support in this modest endeavour by this extremely passionate group of shutterbugs.
The inauguration is on Sept 7 at 5 pm at the Karnataka Chitrakala Parishad premises. Besides the exhibition, well-known photographers Anand Sharan and Dr Manoj Sindagi would be guests and interact with the audience on the Sept 8 and 9.
More details are available on Wide Angle 2007.
So chuunu, muunu, uncle, aunty, Mr, Mrs, bunty, bubblies, maaga, dost, friends, pals, amis, be there and scuba dive into a world, where there are three predominant components, you, pics and your interaction with pics. This is a personal invitation to all on behalf of Anita and her team to attend this exhibition. The pics that you saw here are just the starters and the main course is more sumptuous and varied. Have fun.
Keep reading and remain connected.
