DAG presents photo exhibition

Kolkata, Aug 17 : The Delhi Art Gallery (DAG) in order to mark the centenary of Indian cinema this year presented a photo exhibition in Kolkata by photographer Nemai Ghosh titled 'Nemai Ghosh: Satyajit Ray and Beyond' showcasing a photographic archive based on the works of the legendary filmmaker Satyajit Ray.

Nemai Ghosh, who had been the quintessential Satyajit Ray biographer, has built up a vast and valuable photographic archive, which is being housed by the DAG.

Curated by Pramod Kumar KG, the exhibition presents several iconic and many never-before-seen images of actors, scenes, sets and locations during the filming of Ray's films as well as the filmmaker at work, taken over a twenty-five year period, as well as an array of images of regional films and actors.

DAG noted that the exhibition attempts to bring to light Ray's lesser-known but equally extensive documentation of cinema, both mainstream Hindi cinema from Bombay as well as regional Bengali cinema.

"This exhibition brings together for the first time this rich body of work, as a tribute to the individual filmmakers, including Satyajit Ray, Indian cinema in its centennial year, as well as the power of the photograph to witness, record and tells stories," a DAG spokesperson said.

Through the celebration of Ghosh's work with cinema, DAG further showcased a part of India's cinematic and photographic history in Kolkata.

The exhibition which started on Aug 16 at the Harrington Street Arts Centre will be running till Aug 31.
