FROM KOLKATA-WITH LOVE
Some of the most iconic and powerful photographs taken of Kolkata went on display at Indian Council for Cultural Relations (ICCR) from 19th to 22nd February.
Renowned Swiss photographer and CR supporter, Benoit Lange, has been capturing life in the city through his black and white images for almost three decades.
He has carried out photographic assignments all over the world, and his work has been shown at numerous exhibitions and in books.
It was his deep connection with this city and its people, and his desire to publicize the work of Dr Jack Preger, which started him off on his life-long journey as a photographer.
So coming back to Kolkata to stage a photographic exhibition entitled With Love From Calcutta his photographs of the city is particularly close to his heart.
In addition to Benoit’s work, a number of portraits by children supported by Calcutta Rescue, were also exhibited and the talented young artists were there each day painting portraits on the spot of people who attend the exhibition.
The proceeds of purchases at the exhibition were donated to Calcutta Rescue.
