Ever seen Bangalore come alive in various unexpected angles reflecting creative & meaningful perspectives hidden within the frames for you to explore? Look no further - just dive into the Bangalore 360° - A Photo Carnival to take a whirlwind tour of the vibrant city Namma Bengaluru all under one roof.
To celebrate it's 5th Anniversary, Bangalore photowalk community is hosting this rare level of display of some of the best photographs of the city captured by it's members in the last 5 years at the Rangoli Metro Art Centre - M.G Road from 5th Jul till 14th July 2013. Rangoli Metro Art Centre is a novel gallery in town debuting with this photo carnival too. This sure is huge for us!!
What can you expect from this carnival? A picture speaks 1000 words they say and when you have plenty such pictures offering insights into the city's heritage, people, culture, nature, streets, cityscape, architecture and all things that make the city of Bangalore, need I say more?!
Being a proud Bangalorean and a member of the photowalk community myself, I could not wait to witness and be part of this historical moment - yes one of my captures is on display too! Growing up in the city, I have always been fascinated by the transformation it has witnessed (although not at the expected pace); be it in the diversity of people, the culture, infrastructure, urbanization and it's remarkable presence in the IT arena so much so that the garden city once known as the pensioner's paradise has now emerged as the country's IT hub and acclaimed as the Silicon valley of India. This is also the theme of my capture displayed in the exhibition. We have miles to go before some of the basic problems facing Bangalore can be filed off. For now, grab this opportunity to cherish some of the awesome images of the city - I had a wonderful time at the gallery exploring the city like never before, not to mention meeting & interacting with some amazing photographers and the organizers of the exhibition.
So what are you waiting for?
