AvTvISO Exhibition-2020 Frame
We had to cancel our AvTvISO Annual Exhibition-2020 (including RGB-2019 & CMYK-2020 Salon’s Exhibition) just few days before the scheduled date due to COVID lockdown despite all the arrangements we had made like gallery booking, making the frames ready, hotel booking for guests, etc. We were heart-broken but not hopeless.

We didn’t want to destroy the frames. We respect each photograph and we know how much effort it needs to create a photograph & participating in a salon.

Finally, we have found a home for these frames. We are thankful to Swami Vivekananda Vidyalaya Nursery & Primary School in Chennai. They have given us a permanent place for these frames in their school building.

The principal of the school also sent us a beautiful note for these gifts. She wrote “… thank you… for giving us such a valuable gift… I am sure that these 15 photographs in frames we have received today will help our students find curiosity in the world they live in as well as make their academic environment more beautiful. May we request you to share this letter with the wonderful photographers who have clicked these beautiful images as a token of our gratitude?”

The 15 frames belong to these photographers:

Alay Sankar Dawn_India
Amal Alameer_Saudi Arabia
An Thanh Nguyen_Vietnam
Arnaldo Paulo Che_Hong Kong
Frank Hausdoerfer_Germany
Frantisek Toth_Slovakia
Kim-Pheng Sim_Singapore
Niraj Gera_India
Oguzhan Hacisalihoglu_Turkey
Ratnadeep Mitra_India
Saurabh Sirohiya_India
Udayan Sankar Pal_India
Woodpecker Huang_Taiwan
Yuk Fung Garius Hung_Hong Kong

The rest of the frames have already been handed over to it’s authors. We have few more frames of photographers from Bangalore. We will handover these frames to their respective authors once someone from AvTvISO travels to Bangalore from Chennai.

Few frames contain fine art nudes which we couldn’t gift to the school. We have added them to the permanent collection of AvTvISO with the permission of their author.

Thank you to everyone who has been with us through this journey. We hope we can have a fantastic exhibition in 2021.

Kolkata
What do you do when you want to know more about a city?
I read books!

In October, I was discussing a project on Kolkata (Calcutta) with one of my webmasters, Raju Sutradhar. I found myself curious about how Kolkata or Calcutta, the “City of Joy“ has been perceived by photographers in the past. I wanted to use their perspectives to compare with mine.

I bought all the books I could find on Amazon related to photography and Kolkata last October! Here is the list of the books in my library now whose titles include the word Kolkata /Calcutta:

Calcutta by Raghubir Singh
Calcutta by Stephen Livick
Eight Days by Taxi: Calcutta to Bombay by Andreas Herzau
Kolkata Calcutta by Fionn Reilly
Kolkata by Nemai Ghosh
Calcutta-Kolkata by Raghu Rai
Calcutta Then - Kolkata Now
Calcutta: Repossessing the City by Leena Kejriwal
Redeeming Calcutta by Steve Raymer
Calcutta 1940-1970 by Jayant Patel
Calcutta: Chitpur Road Neighborhoods by Peter Bialobrzeski
The Forgotten Palaces of Calcutta by Joanne Taylor
Kolkata Canvas by Sunil K Dutta
Mother Teresa of Calcutta by Sunita Kumar

I found the following books worth a read by any photographer even if they are not particularly researching Kolkata:

1. Calcutta by Raghubir Singh: As usual a Raghubir Singh book that is another gem in his repertoire and probably the best way to learn street & storytelling photography.
2. Calcutta- Chitpur Road Neighborhoods: This book shows how a slow shutter speed can transform a photograph of an ordinary place into an interesting frame.
3. Redeeming Calcutta by Steve Raymer: Best book to learn how to capture the spirit of a vibrant & charismatic city like Kolkata.
4. Kolkata Calcutta by Fionn Reilly: This book helped me learn why monochrome is the best way to show the character of a city.
5. Mother Teresa of Calcutta by Sunita Kumar: A beautiful book on Mother. We can learn how to capture a person’s aura within his/her day-to-day activities.
6. Calcutta-Kolkata by Raghu Rai: You will understand why many photographers, including me consider him the God of Indian Photography. Learn how he captured stories, breathtaking compositions and moments in time in this book.

Drop by if you are in Chennai to read them from my library or add them in your shopping cart soon. You will not regret it I am sure.

BIO
Born in 1979, Udayan Sankar Pal grew up in Canning (WB, India), the gateway of the Sunderbans. He has been dabbling with photography since he was 13 years old. Hailing from a village himself, his eyes are drawn towards those elements that he can identify with, that are hidden from a city dweller. He has honed his skills over the span of 27 years and has received over 3000 awards both from National and International forums. He has also been awarded many distinctions and honours.

Udayan’s interest in photography extends to many other aspects beyond just clicking photographs on his own. He has established the only international Archive of Photography Exhibition (APE.net.in) in the world with over 10,000 brochures in his collection right now. He also is an active contributor to magazines and journals where he likes to pen his thoughts about photography and share his knowledge with other like-minded photographers. A respected mentor to budding and amateur photographers, he also has been invited to many events as a thought leader and speaker in the world of photography. He also believes in propagating the art form through various other initiatives such as running photography salons in India, acting as a judge in many national and international salons, running a photographers cooperative under the brand of AvTvISO (AvTvISO.com), supporting photographers by purchasing prints and building a gallery dedicated to the art called SignedPRINTS (SignedPRINTS.net), building a world class personal library of rare and iconic books on photography with over 1000 titles painstakingly collected over many years, collecting and curating a well acknowledged collection of postal stamps related to photography and many more such initiatives.

He says photography is all about the eye. You either see things or are influenced to see things. Having travelled a long way from the bare feet camera toting village lad to a selective shutterbug and a passionate pursuer of the art of photography in all its forms, he truly believes that photography is his religion.
