press-photo-The five day long photography exhibition organized by Navi Mumbai Press Photographer’s Welfare Association held at Shivaji Chowk in Vashi came to an end today with Commissioner Javed Ahmed and Deputy Commissioner Ashok Dudhe paying a visit. Often, while reading newspapers, one comes across brilliant eye catching photographs that hold one’s imagination. But seldom is a thought spared about the intense hard work that goes behind taking these photographs. For press photographers, capturing the various shades and tints of life into still pictures is not only a part of their job that earns them their bread but also a passion which they pursue relentlessly and with utmost dedication. Reflections 2010, an initiative of the Navi Mumbai Press Photographer’s Welfare Association, provided the perfect platform for press photographers to exhibit their talent. Held over a period of five days, the exhibition was held at Shivaji Chowk in Vashi. On display were a number of pictures by press photographers, taken in the course of their assignments as well as at other times. The photos that featured in the exhibition seemed to cover all aspects of life and included action from the Indian Premier League, dance performance of stars like Hema Malini and Deepika Padukone, the plight of the poor and the needy, street kids enjoying in the rain, extraordinary feats, environmental concerns such as the condition of mangroves in the city and even casual moments from day to day life among others. The last day of the exhibition was marked by the presence of Commissioner Javed Ahmed and DCP Ashok Dudhe along with other officials of the police force who were quite impressed with the photographs. DCP Ashok Dughe congratulated and appreciated the initiative to acknowledge the works of press photographers by means of a photo exhibition and said that such platforms should be organized more often so that budding photographers can pick up a few hints by visiting these exhibitions.
