Acclaimed photographer 25-year-old Anshul Mehrotra has made Indore proud yet again by getting selected for a photography competition organised by the European Union.

He is amongst the nine lucky winners from across the world whose works will be exhibited in Belgium from June 3-4 .

“They had an open competition where we had to shoot on the theme ‘How our food will play a role in the future’. It basically dealt with relevant issues like global warming, climate change and ecological imbalance,” said Mehrotra.

He said the winner of the competition will be decided by public voting and the work will be then exhibited in a Universal expo in Milan.

“People visiting the exhibition in Belgium would be able to vote on the spot,” he added.

The work of the contestants will also be exhibited for renowned environmentalists, European leaders and senior activists.

“It’s a big moment for me as not only do I have a chance to exhibit my work on a global platform but will have feedback from people belonging to different backgrounds,” Mehrotra avered.

Alumni of School of Journalism and Mass Communication, DAVV, Mehrotra previously had earned the distinction of being a finalist at the National Geographic cover shoot- Mission North East and has won the canon photo marathon contest in 2012.

Leaving for Belgium on June 1 to take part in the exhibition, Mehrotra drives inspiration from the world around him.

He stresses that the only thing which drives him towards success is the thrill of exhibiting his thoughts process on reel.

“I never took photography as an art or a career option. For me it’s a medium where I can show people what I feel and see. This aspect makes me reach out for more and more shots unless I am satisfied with the frame,” he said.
