Exhibition by S. Bhattacharya leaves viewers spellbound

The first ever mobile photography exhibition (A to Z) by Sanjay Bhattacharya was inaugurated with the gracious presence of well-known personalities from the society Begum Sharmila Pataudi, Padmashree Shovana Narayan at Bikaner House Main Building. Born in 1958 in Kolkata, Sanjay Bhattacharya graduated with a Diploma in Fine Arts from the Government College of Arts and Crafts, Kolkata in 1982. He has participated in some national and international art events and workshops and enjoys collaborating with musicians a n d o t h e r artists. His works can be seen in important public and private collections in India and overseas including the World Bank and the Parliament House in Delhi. He has also prepared a portrait of two of the former Indian presidents Shankar Dayal Sharma and K R Narayanan. Despite being a professional painter, there is no end to his spectacular skills. Breaking the monotonous work schedule he picked up his camera and went on his first tour of India in 2017 where he clicked 1000 photos out of which he showcased a few in his first Photography Exhibition in the same year. Once again he got all of his clicks but from his own mobile phone camera this time. He came up with four different segments for the exhibition, some were shots of his hand shadows in mystic lights while some were of his distorted shadows or reflections of him on different elements. Few were outdoor photography and the last sets were interiors. In a candid conversation Sanjay Bhattacharya said, “I am very obliged to see such a heart-warming welcome to my first ever mobile photography in the city. Since I started my second tangent in 2017, this was a new experiment to follow the freedom of passion I found over the last few years. Now, I have much more to give after seeing such success and love I received from people”. The show will be continue till 30th September at Prithvi Art and Cultural Center, Safdarjung Enclave, New Delhi.
