RENAISSANCE by SR Mandal
I started photography when I was in class VIII, about the same time I turned 13 years of age 31 years ago. One of my favorite photographic activities then was to attend Photography Exhibitions in Kolkata. These exhibitions introduced me to the names and works of few renowned photographers of that time, especially the ones who lived in Kolkata and in other parts of Bengal. Later, their work became tomes or guides for our generation of photographers from where we learnt the basics as well as learnt how to elevate our view from what we knew. One of the legendary photographers of that time is Sri Shanti Ram Mandal (aka our beloved SR Mandal Sir).

Recently he published a book with his work called “RENAISSANCE”. Adding this legend’s book in my photo book library felt like a dream come true. His work is a little different from the typical “you-see-what-I-see” frames as his frames capture what he feels, a slice of his creativity and idea.

I am sure this book is and will forever be considered an important piece of work in the History of Photography, especially in the realm of Indian Photography for the methods Sir has used to create his masterpieces.

I am thankful to Kalyan Chattopadhyay for helping me to get this book.

The Divine Spectacles by Swaminathan Vadivelu
Two of my favorite religious festivals are Kulasai Dasara & Theyyam and have been photographing them for the last 7 years. I am also an avid photography related book collector.

Unfortunately, I could not find any books on these two festivals so far.

Fortunately, to fill this void, my friend & photographer Swaminathan Vadivelu published a book on these two festivals.

After a long time my desire to add a book in my library on Kulasai Dasara & Theyyam is now fulfilled.

Thank you Swami for sending a copy of the awesome book. You have successfully captured the true essence of these two festivals in photos & text. Congratulations!!!

Wanted to check if our Postal Address works or not after relocating to Pune. Requested Srikanth from Chennai to send a blank registered letter. He sent a small Santa instead of sending a blank mail. We are touched with his thoughtfulness.

Santa came first at our new home. Not only that it also set the mood at our home of Christmass at home.

Checking this address was important for me because I am expecting to receive a lot of postal mails with my awards. Now I am sure I will not miss anymore gifts in this home.

Ladakh-The Barren Splendour
I buy books related to photography regularly and I am really proud of my photo book collection. Recently I added fantastic book to my library.

It is a coffee table book by Kalpana Chatterjee on Ladakh. She lived there for a few years as her husband was posted with the Indian Army. This helped her discover deeply the many facets of photogenic Ladakh & her images inspired many photographers like me to visit & photograph this nature’s heaven.

If possible, please go through her book. I am sure you will see Ladakh in a new light which will prompt you to plan a visit to the place once again very soon.

“Gezen Bilir” is a Turkish proverb that means the wanderer knows or “They know more who travels”.

“Gezen Bilir” is a set 6 books on Travel Photography by Reha Bilir. These books are the result of Reha Bilir’s travel worldwide.

I know him from 2015 when I became a member of Sille Sanat Sarayi (https://sillesanat.com/). Sille Sanat Sarayi became one of the Best Photography Clubs of the world due Reha Bilir’s leadership. Over many years, our relationship deepened and I now share a very special bond with him. He is my big brother from Turkey. He is not only an amazing photographer and human being, but also the finest example of a leader who knows how to foster growth for others. I have rarely seen any person who loves the photography so selflessly as he does & who always tries to make the other photographers shine.

These books are the best gift I have received this year. Thank you my brother for this precious and beautiful gift.
Please let me know if anyone is interested in these books. I will share his contact, so you can get these books too.

A beautiful gift from Denmark!
Dr Kim Fleischer Michaelsen, an avid street photographer sent his book (Title: From Madras to Chennai) for a few of us PSM Members (Photographic Society of Madras).

It’s an incredible book where he beautifully captured the true essence of Chennai Streets. This book is a result of 50 years of Street Photography & 9 visits to Chennai from Denmark. He first visited Chennai in 1969 and last in 2019.

Moreover, the profits from this book will be donated to an NGO supporting vulnerable children in Chennai.

I always believe one needs to be a good human being to be a good photographer & Dr Kim is one of the finest examples.

Perfectionists are represented by a Cat for their strict standards, intelligence, and ambition. They thrive when faced with a challenge and are not afraid of exploring new niches. As photo nerds, they often find themselves shooting scenes where they can utilize their extensive photography knowledge. However, due to their overly precise nature, Perfectionists need to be independent and patient in order to capture great shots. This is part of what makes being a Perfectionist so rewarding and the results are reflected in the quality of their photos.

Social Share: Cycling
Two years ago, I started cycling with an idea for a photographic project in my mind. Before I started the project, I wanted to know their world intimately. So in the span of one year, I completed double SR.

SR or Super Randonneur is a title earned by any cyclist who completes a series of brevets (200KM in 13.5Hrs, 300KM in 20Hrs, 400KM in 27Hrs & 600KM in 40Hrs) all in the same year. I realised that Brevets or BRM are an addiction. 40 Hrs on a cycle not only teaches you many life lessons, it adds unforgettable memories in your life & many interesting stories to share… Here is an old post about the first 5 months I spent cycling: bit.ly/sr-usp

Now, two years since the time I cycled manically, I have finally started my photographic project, the same one for which I cycled day & night, every day including on weekends, lost almost 13 KGs and covered almost 23000KMs in a span of one year.

Happy to meet a few cyclists again with who I rode on many BRMs and spent many days & nights on the road with. Waiting to make many new friends, listen to their stories & tell those to the world through my photographic project… Feeling excited again to work on something new…

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.

Leaving FIP
When I was young, my father taught me the proverb “The righteous choose their friends carefully”. I want my 5 year old son to learn this lesson from me as well by showing that I still value and honour what I learnt from my father.

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.

Alternate BIO
Udayan has 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 became his religion when he was 13 years old, about 29 years ago. People & their day to day activities attract him most as a subject. He has over 5000+ acceptances and has received 570 Awards from 90 Countries so far.

Udayan’s interest in photography extends to many other aspects beyond just clicking photographs. He has established the only international Archive of Photography Exhibition (threedots.in) in the world with over 10,000 brochures in his collection. He is also extremely proud of his personal library spanning over 2500 titles of rare and iconic books on photography.

He says photography is all about the eye. You either see things or are influenced to see things. Being a non-professional photographer, it’s his intense passion that inspires him to interact with people and to know our world better. (Website: udayansankarpal.com)
