New Delhi: When remembering the memories and feelings hidden behind an image, the phrase “a picture is worth a thousand words” resonates strongly. With this thought in mind, the Raghu Rai Center for Photography is organizing an exhibition of the work of eight students who span all photographic genres, including street and documentary photography, landscapes, portraiture, photographic storytelling, photography conceptual, fashion and product. The exhibition is on October 5 and 6, from 11:00 a.m. to 6:30 p.m. at the Visual Arts Gallery – India Habitat Center, Lodhi Estate, New Delhi.
The exhibition will also feature two photo essays: “India Has Its Own Bull Run”, a photo essay on the Khekra festival, by Jaiveer Singh Rathore, and “Sometimes a God”, a photo essay on the Theyyam dance form, by Krishnan R. Menon.
The curator of the exhibition, Nitin Rai, said: “The different genres of photography, including landscape, portrait, street, documentary, photojournalism, photo series, interior, architecture, fashion and products, all made creatively. All of these genres provide students with a bigger market for homework and jobs. Although the Center is only 9 years old, graduate students here are doing well. In this exhibition, we present the work of 8 young photographers.
In addition to this, mentor and master artist Raghu Rai highlighted how the center has helped budding photographers on their journey with an intense student-faculty discussion. “Each year, we are happy to see refreshing, sometimes delicious and serious work from each of them. The Center has set high standards in contemporary photography through the hard work of a new generation of budding photographers,” he said.
Photographers like Amrita Sen, Arundhati Dutta, Sahaj Goyal, Jaiveer Singh Rathore and others have produced excellent work. Photographers use a variety of media, such as street photography, product or fashion photography, etc., to display their creativity. The Raghu Rai Center for Photography houses an exceptional campus with lots of greenery. Young minds are guided and have the opportunity to discover their inner potential through visual media and to be in touch with international creativity.
