Fas­ci­nat­ing im­ages of In­dia

Weekend Post (South Africa) - - ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT -

THIS pho­to­graph ti­tled Ele­phant Splen­dour,

by Bay photographer John Grosse, forms part of the Im­ages of In­dia ex­hi­bi­tion be­ing staged at 46 14th Av­enue, Walmer, to­day and to­mor­row. In­spired by the many ex­cit­ing im­ages of In­dia cre­ated by Grosse on his nu­mer­ous trips to the Asian coun­try, well-known fel­low photographer Jill Sneesby led a photo trip to In­dia in Jan­uary.

Sneesby had her­self vis­ited In­dia many times as a guest of the var­i­ous In­dian pho­to­graphic so­ci­eties to lec­ture and judge at pho­to­graphic con­fer­ences and com­pe­ti­tions. She was joined by He­len Wilkins and Elaine Whitcher as well as Fran­cois Roux, the first vice-pres­i­dent of the Pho­to­graphic So­ci­ety of South Africa, and over three weeks they vis­ited Ra­jasthan, Ut­ter Pradesh and Ut­tarak­hand. Two other Bay pho­tog­ra­phers, Leon Hugo and Wayne Webb, also trav­elled to In­dia at this time and the pho­tog­ra­phers all teamed up to show the beauty of this fas­ci­nat­ing coun­try in one col­lec­tive ex­hi­bi­tion. View­ing is from 11am to 4pm to­day and to­mor­row.
