A three-day group photography exhibition at the Government Museum and Art Gallery was inaugurated on Thursday with eleven students of Vivek High School displaying the sixty-five pictures taken by them.
The exhibition is inspired by an educational trip undertaken by the students to London and Vancouver, earlier in August where they learnt technically-challenging concepts like HDR, multi-exposure and long-exposure at Vancouver Photo Workshops.
Each students has contributed five photographs each, in addition to the photographs by Navneet Saxena who is an instructor with the school and Francois Cleroux, a Vancouver-based professional photographer, with the subjects ranging from sports and fashion to the wildlife in Canada. Principal P K Singh congratulated the students on their achievement.
The participants include Abhay Iqbal Singh from class IX, Aditya Surejewala from class VIII, Sidak Sandhu from class IX, Garima Garg from class IX, Pranjal Marwaha from class XI, Shazia Suri from class IX, Ashmeet Narang from class IX, Janvi Sidhu from class IX, Ranjeet Grewal from class IX, Nikhil Ghai from class IX, and Pratul Garg from class VII.
"I wanted to be open to the surprises life has to offer me and be free. There could not have been a better medium with such creative freedom than photography," says 15-year-old Abhay, who has been practising photography for the last four years. Abhay has already clicked more than 500 shots.
