The Vice President M. Venkaiah Naidu has said that Photos are one of the best media of expression and information. He was addressing the gathering after inaugurating the 5th Bi-Annual Photo Exhibition – The Big Picture, organized by the Working News Camerapersons Association, in New Delhi last evening.
The Vice President said that through pictures photojournalists provide us an authentic chronicle of myriad events covered by them. “A picture is worth a thousand words” says the well-known idiom, he said. In fact, some of the news photos convey the whole story – the big picture as the title of this exhibition has been aptly named, he added.
Naidu said that photography, at its best, is a powerful language which speaks to our emotions. He further said that Photography is not just a communication tool but also an influential medium to spread awareness. It allows us to tell our story and show others our framing of the world around us, he added.
The Vice President complimented the All India Working News Cameramen’s Association (WNCA), a national body of print and electronic visual media working journalists, for organizing ‘The BIG PICTURE 2018-19’, the fifth public photo-exhibition of the collective work of WNCA members.
