|Pak photographers on peace mission
Milli Gazette Online
Bangalore: A picture can speak a thousand words. And the 75 photographs which were on display at Venkatappa Art Gallery here certainly did do that and what is more, they were speaking peace.
Art of peace, a 4-day exhibition of 75 award-winning photographs of seven Pakistani photographers conveyed the same here last month.

The show was organized by India International Photographic Council in association with the Photographic Art Society of Pakistan. Mr. Samiur Rahman, president, Photographic Art Society of Pakistan and former IGP and an accomplished international photographer in his own right, says "photography is still in its nascent stage in Pakistan and it is important to keep such people-to-people contact going if we want politicians to look at peace as viable option". Fellow lensman Aftab Ahmed, 72, a forensic expert in the Pakistani police for 52 years, loves experimenting with light colour and composition by presenting stunning images of art. Old age is a common theme and that was evident in the works of all photographers. Works of Bashir, Tauseef A Baig, Syed Javaid A, Kazi, Nisar A. Mirza, M.R. Owaisi, Khurshid Ahmed, Mushtaaq Cheema (late), Samiullah Khan, Ahsanullah Khan and Wasim Owaisi were displayed for the last four days.
