This is the third exhibition in which the Bangalore Shutterbugs have participated or put up, in the span of about 6 months.
This one is titled “Painting by Light” and has been organised by Art Mantram Foundation, a group that works for the promotion of cultural activities in the city. Quite a few Shutterbuggers were present when the exhibition was inaugurated by Anil Kumble yesterday evening.
There were other guests who graced the occasion including Rani Satish, ex-Culture and Kannada minister, Lata Bhandari, Jija Hari Singh and photographer Helmuth Koenz.
Quite a few photographs were sold during the first day itself, including Kaushik B’s beautiful portait of 3 children, which was bought by Kumble. A few other photographs from the lens of Vivek M, Lavannya Goradia and Shankar S were also bought during the exhibition.
Got a chance to meet a few new members of this now burgeoning group. A young enthusiastic engineering student called Jayant came up to me and said he had joined the group through my blog, and that was really nice.
The exhibition is on till April 30, so if you are in Bangalore, do drop in.
The venue is:
5th Floor, Sona Towers, Miller’s Road.
