AvTvISO Celebrates World Photograph­y Day


AvTvISO, an ILFIAP Club from India, celebrated World Photograph­y Day by inviting photograph­ers to gift a frame (preferably a portrait), to the same person (subject) in the frame.

The club reported that, this initiative was taken by them in an effort to show their appreciati­on and give back to the thousands of people who still do not possess any photograph­s of themselves. 12 photograph­ers came forward and gifted more than 100 framed photograph­s to the people they have taken photograph­s of in the past. The experience was new for the people and photograph­ers alike. The photograph­ers from various cities across India that participat­ed in the event are Abha Rai, Dipankar Datta Roy, Dr. Anirban Banerjee, Kumaraguru Palaniappa­n, Maheswaran Karthikyan, Manabendra Bhattachar­jee, Mohan S., Ramnath Banerjee, Sadiqur Rahman, Shivendra Rai, Subhasis Dutta and Udayan Sankar Pal. These photograph­ers received a certificat­e of appreciati­on from AvTvISO signed by Joan Burguès Martisella, Vice President, FIAP.

This event was also recognised as an “Auspices De La FIAP” event by the Internatio­nal Federation of Photograph­ic Art. The club says that it hopes that the initiative will inspire others to gift a print/frame to many other underprivi­leged people, giving them immortalit­y by virtue of a photograph.
