I attended a photo exhibition at Kalakriti Art Gallery this week.

“Vignettes from Women’s lives – Showcasing the spirit of womanhood as seen through the photographers’ lens”

It was a nice collection of photographs that ranged from the rural women working hard and living the simple life to urban, independant “today’s” woman. Of the collection I liked the works of Krishnendu Halder the most.

Here are some of the photographs that I liked.

Girl selling bottles of something. This one was by S. Jaisurya. I liked this one a lot. For one, I thought the girl was very pretty. The fresh look on her face was very refreshing.


Rural women carrying water pots. This one was by Sanjay Raichura. Makes you appreciate the little things in life that we take for granted.


Lttle girls playing in the rain. This one was by Krishnendu Halder. I like pictures of happy people, especially children. these kids certainly looked happy.


This image was of a woman with patriotic eye makeup. This was also by Krishnendu Halder. Very eye catching 🙂


This was a picture taken during a play. This was also by Krishnendu Halder. I liked the expressions on the woman a lot.


This portrait of a rural woman is another favorite of mine. It’s by Syed Alimuddin Raaj.
