Wonders of Nature - A Photogenic Attempt To Connect with Surrounding Fauna


The whitewashed walls of Ravishankar Raval Art Gallery will remain enveloped by beautiful portraits of animals and avian from August 19, 2017, to August 21, 2017 as Manav Pratishthan, one of the proactive photography groups of Ahmedabad will celebrate the World Photography Day through its ‘Wonders of Nature’ exhibition.


The 37 frames displayed at the gallery have been clicked by Kartik Patel, Mayank Ghedia and Rupal Vaidya, who met each other during the Birders’ Baithak monthly seminar. The gathering is a paradise for enthusiastic birders of Ahmedabad who mobilise to talk and know more about birding and bird gazing. Mayank Ghedia, an architect by profession, exhibited his photographic collection for the sixth time through ‘Wonders of Nature’ and said, “Three of us share a common affection for animal conservation and thus decided to contribute our glimpses over a common platform. The exhibition showcased the Indian animal kingdom’s most picturesque views, covering geography of Himalayas to Karnataka.” Kartik Patel, who is into the construction business, introduced his creativity and brought his toddlers and their friends to inaugurate the display. On asking the reason for it, Patel replied with a beam saying, “We all have developed an eye to see a particular object, but these children’s perspective is still unadulterated by the external influences. I think we all should learn to see things without a preconceived notion. Today, I felt immensely delightful when Mahi, Jenya, Kashvi, Vidit and Kiaan inaugurated our exhibition in front of all the honourable guests and spectators.” The event was attended by nature lovers and three photographers’ family-relatives during the lamp-lighting ceremony.


The exhibition is an attempt to get intimate with our surrounding zoology, and moreover, the clicks are certainly sufficing those efforts. Since they have also housed reference books for spectators to know more about these creatures, the showcase will be an enchanting experience for toddlers as well as adults.
