The programme was also attended by the city’s well-known photographers, art critics and lovers.
Around 40 landscape photos of places like Pushkar, Jaisalmer, Ladakh, Goa, Diu and many others have been displayed in this exhibition. It is as if the photographer has captured time in these photographs. Images like folk artists, tribal women and their jewellery, scenes of historical buildings, fishermen fishing or monks applying Tilak on their foreheads have been clearly displayed in the exhibition.
Chasing the natural light and understanding the beauty of a location closely has been the main mantra of Mr. Khan’s photography. In addition to the creative use of natural light and camera aperture, he has also made innovative experiments with photographic angels, which is clearly visible in the exhibition.
On this occasion, Mr. Furqan Khan said that this exhibition is an attempt to showcase the difference between clicking photographs and clicking artistic photographs. He further explained that the visitors will be thrilled with the attractive use of natural light in the exhibited photographs. The exhibition will be open to visitors till August 20 from 11 am to 7 pm.
