The Krishnakriti Foundation, as part of its annual art and cultural festival, in association with the Alliance Francaise of Hyderabad and the French Embassy In India, is organising a workshop on photography. The workshop is being conducted by Amit Mehra, on the 9th and 10th of January, at the Kalakriti Art Gallery.
In his visual journey spanning 18 years, Amit Mehra has traversed through various genres of photography. He has shot a range of international ad campaigns for various clients, which includes Coke, Samsung, Intel, LG, Ford, Microsoft, Emaar and DLF, and various hotels as well - Aman Resorts, Oberoi and Taj Hotels in India & abroad.
Amit was invited by the President of India to photograph the President’s House for the prestigious book, “Dome Over India”. Recently, the Government of Egypt invited him to do a project on Egyptian culture and lifestyle. As part of a cultural exchange program, he received a scholarship from the Government of France for his photography.
The Krishnakriti Art And Culture Festival is organised every year by the Lahoti Foundation, which was established by Prashant Lahoti in memory of his father Krishnachandra B Lahoti. On this occasion, art camps are organised by eminent artists and the works are auctioned off at the end of the festival. The proceeds from the sales go to the Krishnachandra B Lahoti Scholarship, which sponsors holistic education for deserving and needy students. Last year's proceeds supported 70 children.
Entry is free for everyone. Please contact Kalakriti Art Gallery at 6656-4466 for further details.
