Srishti Digilife is proud to present “Making a Difference: The Srishti Fundraiser for Museo”. The event hosts a series of interactive online sessions with India’s top photographers from a variety of genres seeking an initiative to save the Museo Camera in Delhi, a one-of-a-kind museum dedicated solely to the photographic arts. The museum was established by celebrated Indian photographer and visual historian, Aditya Arya in 2009 and is distinctive for its vast collection of vintage cameras, and other photographic equipment, tracing the history of the field pf photography. It also has immense cultural value as it has huge gallery spaces for organizing events, teaching facilities, studios for workshops and a library.
Let’s come together to preserve this exceptional and rare piece of history for the future generations to see and experience.
With 9 sessions with some of India’s finest photographers, we hope to not only garner support for Museo Camera, but also to ensure that the art of photography keeps continuing to thrive.
