Legendary filmmaker satyajit ray

Legendary filmmaker Satyajit Ray tending to his camera, actress Sharmila Tagore in hair curlers getting ready for a shoot and a lot more such candids form a part of a photography exhibition here centred around the master filmmaker.

A rich oeuvre of 250 photographs, which includes shots from his film shoots, his actors, actresses and his crew, clicked by veteran lensman Nemai Ghosh, famously known as Ray's photographer, is on display at the Harrington Street Art Centre here.

"Nemai Ghosh had a long association with Ray and in the 25 years of his brilliant career as a photographer he had captured some brilliant moments in Ray's life and work," said Kishore Singh, head, Publication and Exhibition, Delhi Art Gallery (DAG), the organisers.

The fortnight-long exhibition that began Friday, also brings to the fore Ghosh's collection of photographs from mainstream Bengali and Hindi cinema taken by him during the course of three decades as a prolific photographer.

Curated by DAG, the 'Satyajit Ray and Beyond' exposition showcases moments frozen from Ray's films like "Asani Sanket", "Seemabaddha" and the Feluda series.

"We had acquired Ghosh's collection of around 120,000 photographs a few years ago. They were digitised and archived by the DAG," said Singh.

For enthusiasts, there is a comprehensive record of the exhibit in the form of an illustrative book, to takeaway.
