Exhibition is organized by Delhi Heritage Photography Club and group of amateur photographers are showcasing their work in different galleries of India Habitat Center, Lodhi Estate, Delhi. Let's check out this Photo Journey to know more about this exhibition.

Three of my photographs were selected for this Exhibtion and top photograph in above image is one of them. It's one of the most popular photograph from my collection which has been exhibitted multiple times at various places. Once in Mumbai, which was a campaign about Tourism in India and in United States during Annual Technology Summit of Adobe Systems. Apart from that this has been published many times and used by online portals. A photograph close to my heart. This one was shot while I was learning Photography from Amitabha Bhattacharya and he is there in this photograph.
The other photograph above is second photograph which was shot at Jantar Mantar long time back. Around 4 years back I had seen an exhibition at Indipix Gallery by Sanjay Nandan and it was completely on Yantra Mantra. Awesome collection, which motivated me to explore Jantar Mantar in Delhi. This is one of the unique photograph of Jantar Mantar which has been used by one of the greeting card company in India.

It was a great evening to meet various Photographers and Artists having different visions for future.
This Exhibtion also made me feel that still there are many places in Delhi which I never explored. Of course, it's an opportunity to identify those places and best utilize these winters.
Most of the photographs in this Exhibition are from Qutub Minar, India Gate, Humayun's Tomb, Safdarjung Tomb, Jama Masjid .
The India Habitat Centre is a multipurpose building in New Delhi, India. Mixing work, commercial and social spaces, the Indian Habitat Centre is India’s most comprehensive convention centre.The India Habitat Centre was started in 1993. The public agency for Housing and Urban Development Corporation Ltd (HUDCO) wanted an office building for its workers and made the unprecedented decision to invite chosen non-profit organisations that shared their concern with habitat to share that work space.
In 2009, the India Habitat Centre co-hosted the first Habitat Summit with the Urban Habitats Forum, a professional civil society initiative whose primary purpose is to serve as a multi-disciplinary public awareness and educational platform, and to facilitate positive change in India’s cities by engaging all stakeholders of society in shaping India’s built environment. Held in September, the Summit served as a communication vehicle to position key policy issues and to highlight opportunities for positive change by showcasing community-oriented urban renewal projects.
