“The moments we missed have been immortalised” wrote Jacob Punnoose, DGP in the visitor’s diary at the exhibition. Pictures that awed, shocked and delighted you and then sank into oblivion were brought back to the life at Capital Lens View, the press photographer’s photo exhibition that began on 11th August at VJT hall, Palayam .
The exhibition was organised by the Public Relations Department and Thirivananthapuram Press Club, in association with Kerala Chalachithra Academy. More than a hundred renowned photographs by forty four press photographers were on exhibit. Historical moments, disasters, the marginalised society, golden memories of political events and aspects of nature were caught on the canvas. Photograph in which Chithira Thirunal Balarama Varma shakes hand to Jacqueline Kennedy, wife of former American President John F. Kennedy, caught everybody’s attention.
