One of the exhibitors, Ghazanfar Bhinder opined that photography is a way to give life to moments.

“We do not see things as they are, but the way we are, applying our own perspective. A good photograph gets imprinted in your mind and refreshes your emotional, human side,” he said.

Israr Naqvi, shedding light on his work, said that his photography symbolizes human dignity and a common man’s struggle.

Abdul Waris added that through his work, he had endeavoured to promise a better life for the future generations, and to acquaint viewers with what was happening around them.

Saeed Rao, whose work revolved around rural life, said that mothers had always been a paradigm of strength and strong-headedness, and therefore he had depicted the mothers of Thar region struggling to get water for their children. He further said that his work acted like a mirror to human nature, also focusing on devotees from all kinds of social backgrounds thronging the shrine of Madhu Lal Hussain.
