Photographs open doors into the past, but they also allow a look

Photography is truly an art which keeps a moment from running away- a rectangular memory which you can hold in your hand. Udgam School for children, celebrated the 178th anniversary of ‘World photography day’ to acknowledge the spirit of this art. Armed with cameras, the budding photographers of Udgam School created a mosaic of images displaying incredible landscapes of everyday life. Days ahead of the event, students were allotted various categories like Architecture, Nature, Wild Life and Portrait to capture scenes from various genres. A photo walk by Udgam School unveiled photographs from various hues of life. Esteemed judge, Mr. Jay Shah, Financial consultant at Tata Consultancy Services, selected and awarded the best photographers based on the merit of their work. Mr. Dinesh Thakor and Mr. Chintan Shastri, pillars of Udgam Matters periodical, gave digital photography tips to the budding photographers. “It is important to look everywhere through the eyes of a photographer. Inspiration is all around you”, said Mr Chintan, Editor Udgam Matters. Ms. Radhika Iyer, Director, Udgam School Thaltej, said the celebration aimed at apprising students of the importance of photography in their daily lives. It is inspiring students who aspire to take this art as a hobby or a profession. Photography is truly the only language that is understood all over the world.
