When moments become memories
Travelogue, a solo photography exhibition by debutant photographer Amira Chanana, 17, showcased her memories from <g data-gr-id="20">round</g> the world through her camera. The pictures served as a timestamp of her travel moments across the globe.
Unlike the contemporary way, Amira’s approach to express herself through black and white photography made the exhibition unique in its own kind. When asked about her approach she said, “In this rapid, fast-paced and impatient world, colours are merely glanced upon and barely appreciated. On the other hand, black and white <g data-gr-id="23">medium,</g> renders emphatic emotions and has a deeper connect with the viewer.”
Rohit Gandhi and Rahul Khanna, the directors of the Pallette Art Gallery said, “We, at the Palette Art Gallery are happy to promote a young talent like Amira Chanana, whose work speaks for itself. Photography is a medium of art we believe in and while Palette has exhibited the works of renowned artists like Raghu Rai, Dinesh Khanna, Gigi Scaria in the past, we feel that it is equally important to encourage young artists by giving them a platform to showcase their works to a discerning audience.”
The quest to capture every moment at its finest and the fear of missing out on moments leads a traveller to take some magnificent pictures. Amira’s pictures, which she maintained as her chronicle of travel, not only depicted the mood of the place but also spoke about its culture and people.
