Ottappalam: “Beautiful pictures unveil enormous potentials of photography. Grabbing these by a camera essentially could have required tremendous adventurism and dedication. Congratulations”. These were exactly what the noted writer, M.T. Vasudevan Nair wrote on the visitors’ book after watching recently held exhibition of photographs taken by the official photographer of the Magic Academy, Jyothi Thekkinkattil. All these photos were taken during Gopinath Muthukad’s ‘Vismay Swaraj Yatra’.
There were over two hundred photos speaking in volumes about the magical journey and the challenges it posed.
Intriguing images of diversity and the blissful scenic splendours found from Srinagar to Nathu La Pass, Gangtok to Kohima and from Kolkata to Kanyakumari were told through vibrant photographs.
