Thrissur: An exhibition of wildlife photography is being held at Kerala Lalithakala Akademi till December 31 by Dr Vinod Madhavan, a scientist working at the Indian Institute of Science, Bangalore. The photo-exhibition was inaugurated by Dr Unni Pulikkal S, director of PhotoMuse (a museum dedicated to the art, history and science of photography) on December 24.
The exhibition titled ‘African Odyssey’ showcased at Chitrasala Art Gallery features selected photographs from Vinod’s journey to Maasai Mara in 2019. He has showcased the mesmerising beauty of the wildlife, natural habitat of animals and the richness of the forest through his camera’s lenses.
Vinod, a wildlife enthusiast and photographer, has travelled around the world to explore and capture wildlife in its pristine habitat. He was also part of several photography exhibitions in Qatar. This exhibition portrays a chapter in his expeditions to reconcile with the art of nature photography.
“ The rich and pristine wildlife in Africa is exhilarating. It evokes a deep sense of longing for wilderness and the restoration of nature to its primordial state. I could avail an opportunity to portrait several species in their habitat, doing what they do,” Vinod said.
The photo-exhibition is conducted in association with PMQ and Photomuse. The gallery is open to the public from 10am.
