Menon says, “Over the past 14 months, every day has been a new learning experience. From working on photo reports and documentaries on the street, I have now started to see things that I could not see before.
Amrita Sen, whose works on display include black and white landscapes and product photography, says, “We have reached the exhibition stage of our best work, and we look forward to hearing the feedback and perspective that viewers will provide.”
Center director and exhibition curator Nitin Rai said, “This is our ninth annual exhibition, and after that, we’re taking a break. This year, the center has received few students, but they believe that it is not economically viable.
Mentor and master artist Raghu Rai said, “Each year, the interaction between students and faculty tends to be intense and demanding, and we try to pick up refreshing and serious work from each of them.”
The exhibition is open to the public on October 5 and 6, from 11 a.m. to 6:30 p.m., at the Visual Arts Gallery, India Habitat Centre.
