BE IT Panchchuli peaks of Assam, Annapurna peaks of Nepal, rosy flamingo, spotted deer, various butterflies, spider, giant squirrel or elephants — all captured in lens by the professionals —- are on display at Party Planet in city.
The exhibition organised by The Society of Photography and Fine Arts’ will continue for public till March 12. Photographers with their beautiful work have come under one roof to show their artistic view.
Neeraj Mishra, a wildlife and nature photographer said, “He loves to take photographs, which are natural. Scenery mostly sunset and riverside area with huge mountains attract him. Whereas in wildlife pictures, he has photos of chitals, white-eyed birds with chicks and garden lizard.”
Mishra further said, “For last 30 years, he is enjoying photography. Some of his photographs have been placed in encyclopedia, bank calendars and American Express. Once I visited the Jim Corbett National Park and there I saw a group of 40 elephants. When I clicked my camera to take the picture two elephants came forward to attack. Somehow, I saved my life. But fortunately picture was taken.”
Similarly, Dhirendra Swarup, nature and wildlife photographer is more fascinated by the beauty of butterflies. Swarup has photographed various species of butterflies sitting on beautiful flowers. He has also pictured a normal squirrel and a giant squirrel so that people could easily differentiate between these two species. Swarup further said that the giant squirrel is mostly found in Assam and lives at the top of a tree. It is very rare when people get to see a giant squirrel.
"I have photographs of solar and lunar eclipse with specific timings. They are in more demand by various university people. But I believe photograph of a colourful spider is liked by most of the people as they pay least attention to these insects,” he added.
Rishi Bajpai’s photographs are ready to take away the breath of people. Bajpai has good collection of photographs. His works include magnificent peaks, mountains and clouds, rosy flamingo, a baby langur in mother’s lap and many more. There are few photographers who are more interested towards the human life. They pictured those photographs to focus the emotional part of human life.
However, Amitabh Mukherji, who has 20 years of experience in photography, tells that he was attracted towards human elements. But now he is concentrating on fashion and tabletop. “I have worked for government brochures and Dharm Yug,” he added.
Prafull Mehrotra’s photographs depicted pathetic side of human life. In one of his pictures, a girl is crying and running towards an auto and the name given to the photograph is ‘meri awaz suno’.
Three little visitors hardly ten years of age visited the exhibition. Talking to HT, they said that the photographs are wonderful. They have never seen such types of pictures. “It is fantastic,” one of them said.
