Pictures that please the eye, tell a story

An image captured with a click of the camera defines that moment which won’t return. But the photograph enables one to relive that moment each time you look at it. Trying to relive this experience, Hungarian and other international photographers, from different walks of life but sharing a common passion of photography, have come together to exhibit their work at ‘Moments’, Hungarian Information and Cultural Centre.

Exploring the varied angles of their common muse – India, the exhibition has everything from portraits to landscapes and life of people living in different cities of the country.

Katalin Gerhardt, a human resource manager by profession has stayed in Poland and Switzerland. For the last couple of years, she has been living in India.

“My profession reflects my real interest - people and their ambitions, lives and feeling, which I aim to capture and freeze in time with my photography. Coming to India as a trailing spouse meant taking a break from working life which opened the opportunity to dedicate time to my passion of photography. I did my studies at Shoots & Shoots Photography Academy under the mentorship of Shyam Prasad and have clicked pictures that give you a glance of my moments in India,” says Gerhardt.

Joelle Van Winghe, a paediatrician by profession, took advantage of two sabbatical years to devote to photography. “India offered me an extraordinary space in which I could explore and freely unfold my creativity,” says Winghe, who has specifically captured the colours of Rajasthan. “Through my photographic journey, I have encountered people and places I wouldn’t have known otherwise. It filled my eyes with light and through my images, I want to give it back and share with everyone,”she says.

Andreina Gonzalez’ love for animals and nature is reflected in her photographs. “Our family’s appreciation of the world’s wide range of cultures has brought us to live in five different countries outside my native Venezuela. Travel photography is my way of capturing the spirit of people and the beauty of our environment, both natural and human-made. My pictures in the exhibition are there to please the eye, tell stories, generate emotions and invite others to discover what the world has to offer.”

The exhibition is on view at The Hungarian Information and Cultural Centre till March 20 from 10 am to 4 pm.
