That was in the month of Jan 2017 and I got a call from one of my friends a Bengali gentleman from kolkata Mr Amitabha Mukherjee to share best of my clicks for an “International Photography Exhibition” scheduled to be held in Mar2017.
I was not sure of such things but any how I shared few shots just casually over email to “Calcutta Journalist Club“.I was really surprised to get a call on a fine morning in March that one of my clicks I shared have been selected for the Exhibition to displayed from 17.03.2017 to 19.03.2017.To be honest my first experience of my picture being displayed in an international photo forum.
On the D day me along with my wife reached the venue”Indian Council for Cultural Relations(ICCR) Nandalal Bose Gallery Kolkata.
This is the photograph taken by me as selected and displayed in the Exhibition.
About 1500 photographs were sent for pre selection and out of that only 425 pictures were finally selected by the Jury members for the display.
It was a memory I would love to cherish in my life as a first time exposure to such beautiful clicks by renowned photographers .
My special thanks to Amitabha Mukherjee who invited me to take part in the contest, Mr Prantik Ghosh President of “CALCUTTA JOURNALIST CLUB” & Prolay da.
