Just reached home after awesome My Kolkata in Kolkata Photography Exhibition 2019 opening preview on 30th July 2019, Tuesday (5 pm) at Kolkata Centre for Creativity. It was rainy day here in Kolkata, but that’s not effect on people coming up this exhibition, it was very nice intimate gathering. Personally I love Rain so much it’s lucky for me and also bring lots of creative smell too. In Chinese Tradition they worship rain like a god it’s means lucky for them same for me also.
Kolkata’s art, culture, music, food, people, street photography and many other things you can’t find elsewhere. That’s why lots of people traveled so many country and complete their higher studied and others then always came back to this City of Joy – Kolkata for give it back. It’s happy to say that now Kolkata has their New Modern Beautiful Architectural with high-end amenities centre called Kolkata Centre for Creativity. Also one more space I love to mention that is Experimenter Gallery (and The Harrington Street Arts Centre). This is one of the finest space for it’s own aura, personally I love that. That space now has two building restored heritage building of Kolkata, first one is Gariahat and new one Ballygunge. This type of spaces help to curate international exhibition and interactive creative event.
Kolkata Centre for Creativity or KCC in short loved the experience must say. I always prefer some kind of luxury hotel or posh space to showcase and networking like minded people like International gallery. But this place gave that posh high profile experience like a 7 star hotel and most importantly it helps to interact with people and listen their precious stories.
It’s a great honour for me part of this photography exhibition beautifully Curated by Reena Dewan and whole team for their contributions. I congratulate her for this wonderful idea about Kolkata and listen their stories and KCC for the support. This exhibition in collaboration/partnership with Tourism Department, Govt.of West Bengal. I think this helps to spread out those stories internationally and also influence tourism of West Bengal.
It’s was well organised event in terms of guest, press people, celebrities, dignitaries, food and people of kolkata and others everything was there.
I love Behind the Scene or making of any kind of event and Wrap up or Packup those thing give me goosebump to my creative. So I went little early to see that behind the scene work going on. For me this was precious than main event. I captured few behind the sense moment. Mostly people don’t care or ignore those thing. And believe me I captured always these moments. You know that staff or people working to make it happen they are not photographed or captured normally, it’s like people don’t see it that details. Always when I captured some moments and give them enough potential to became a hero of my frame it’s great felling. And sometime eye exchange, we smile and they are happy or shock that guy clicking our photographs, we are not special we are normal people no one love to write or waste their shutter count or memory. In future I love to do some story about them.
I already wrote another blog post regarding making of it, I have little time to make it happen, don’t know how was it. You can read here and share your thought. I don’t think normally you came across such blog post and I love to document those moments. In film culture BTS film is there for fulfilled the requirement for Submit the main film (for Authenticity). One more thing after rolling we can’t check ISO and others setting normally like Photos. Very Interesting fact that when I was searching for my video after published I saw that very few video produced and published online to see others work curating exhibition and event.
I’m not capturing fully everything I know, but like from Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani– “Life me jitna bhi try karo, kuch na kuch to chootega he. Isliye jahan hain, wahan ka he mazaa lete hain na“
Not exactly fit in this case, I mean to say that I can’t capture whole event I have to participate and listen to others also, So I managed both and perfectly captured and Rolled some moments also keep it very simple and short. I smartly planned and managed successfully.
By the way after a long time I write so many things in detail in single blog post, I don’t know in this digital age people will read or not, nowadays people love short text content more photos and videos consume like a fast food. Actually we lost our tradition and culture to write like a blog post with own thoughts and stories. Interestingly right now YouTube VLOG is very popular for same concept though.

Now this location little far from the city by public transport that’s why people little lazy for coming (including me also) but slowly it will develop that’s for sure. And people will come for the value this space provide.
Kolkata, the City of Joy has many faces. From Heritage and Historical buildings in the North, to sprawling green lawns in the Centre to Posh localities in South and most contemporary urban spaces in the East. This city hides many stories in each corner.
From Curator Reena Dewan
The city fascinated me from the day I stepped in Kolkata 12 years ago. The warm smiling faces of local bengalies were very welcoming and at times made me wonder how could people be so happy irrespective of the strata of society they belonged to. Sometimes I would spot young and old alike deeply engrossed in playing chess under a bridge while returning from office with laptop bags hanging on their shoulders. And other times just reading news from the paper that was put on wall as part of an old practice. I would hear stories of people’s journeys in Trams, yellow taxies or in Metro enveloped in nostalgia. A visit to #Badabazaar, #NewMarket or #Chandanicould fetch you outstanding experiences. How some love stories that germinated during daily travels on river hooghly saw the happy endings and some only remained embedded deep in memories. #JadavpurUniversity, #PresidencyUniversity, #CalcuttaUniversity, #RabindraBhartiUniversity, #GovtArtCollege#StXaviersCollege the meccas of education in Kolkata may have more tales to tell than 80 years of Indian Cinema.
The thought of knowing more such stories has inspired her to curate the Exhibition My Kolkata in Kolkata.
