A group photography exhibition was held at Piramal Art Gallery, NCPA, in Mumbai from November 29 to December 8, 2013. It showcased the works of five photographers—Idris Ahmed, Mathew Kurien, Shabir Hussain Santosh, Sanjay Das and Partha Sarathi Sengupta. Idris Ahmed, a freelance photographer, tells stories of his travels through Spiti Valley, shows a celebration of the colours of Holi in Braj and captures the essence of Jerusalem in Israel.
Design Manager Mathew Kurien’s photo series, known as The Soulless Cutouts has images shot in the streets of London. These pictures have people as their subject, but their figures have been omitted, to emphasize the point that no image can be soulless, even with the subject cut out.
Kashmiri artist Shabir Hussain Santosh showed his homeland’s stunning landscape through his landscape photography. Sanjay Das, who previously worked as an advertising professional, has artistically expressed his travels in India through his photography. Photojournalist Partha Sarathi Sengupta took voluntary retirement to dedicate his time to nature studies and conservation. Some of his work on nature and his travels in rural India was on display.
