The renowned newspaper, Indian Express,
has a supplement called ‘Pune Newsline’.
For some time now they are publishing some spectacular entries of the World Press Photo.
This is brought to India by only the Indian Express Group. The World Press Photo Exhibition 2005
will be held at the Express Towers Gallery, Mumbai from December 17 to January 7. This exhibition receives support from the Dutch Postcode Lottery and is sponsored worldwide by Cannon and TNT and co-sponsored by ONGC in India.
This column of the newspaper showcases photographs of incomparable talent on an international level. Well-captured and aesthetically shot pictures are printed. The Indian Express group has in reality unveiled stories in that little space. But this story has been delivered with eternal beauty, matchless creativity and of course a story narrated in silence.
It not only unfolds an array of scintillating pictures but also showcases veritable talent in photography that many overlook.
And all these pictures come with the necessary details. What does the photo contain, its subject and where it has been clicked, is written on the left of the picture. On the right a small paragraph describing the picture is seen. This gives the picture a story, a rationale and a reason, which at times you can relate to. It involves you completely and takes you to where the picture has been shot to where it has been developed. Which prize the picture has won and in which category along with the name of the photographer and the country he represents is also mentioned. This makes the picture complete and also adds another dimension to it.
But the icing of the cake is that by giving us an insight of the exhibition they have advertised about their exhibition in the subtlest manner. No hype, no hue and cry. In silence they have really spoken a thousand words.
I think this part of the newspaper has really added another feather in the overcrowded cap of the Indian Express Group!
