Indore Photographers Community started as an informal group of 10-12  Hobby Photographers from Indore who came in contact with each other through internet (orkut and flickr) and conducted their first photowalk together in 2009, which has now grown to a whooping 30000+ members, making it the largest group of Photographers in Central India. The most unique aspect of this group is that People from various professions, who share their love for Photography, learn from each others’ enriching experiences in their separate genres, through regular Photo Slide shows, Workshops, Exhibitions and Photo walks. The members believe in mutual learning experiences and not profiteering, so all events are free of charge for all those who strive to learn.
Pratibimb 2017- A Group Photography Exhibition by Indore Photographers Community (fondly known and referred to as IPC) , is one such initiative to enhance mutual learning and bonding among fellow photographers.
Pratibimb 2017 showcases the work of 22 Photographers all from different walks of life, age groups and Professions, who see the world with their own perspective. The best part for any spectator is the chance to see things from the eyes of the Photographer and have a glimpse into their exciting lives, travel stories and experiences. The Participating Photographers would all be there to meet and greet you and have a gala time with you.

The exhibition would start on 15 September 2017 from 4 PM to 8 PM at Pritamlal Dua Art Gallery, Indore and continue over the weekend on 16 and 17 September from 11 AM to 8 PM.

Tushar Thakur
When words become unclear, I shall focus with photographs. When images become inadequate, I shall be content with silence – Ansel Adams. The quote above truly defines itself. We can see the clear skies with our naked eyes and the fresh air can only be felt, but the nature can be captured forever. This is what my passion for photography depicts. I always had that fierce connect with the drama of nature. I’ve been passionate about the nature and wildlife anything which comes in my way. What I deeply feel is, we can always capture the memories or moments which can be cherished life long.

Aditi Bhandari

I am studying dentistry and I do photography as a hobby.Photography makes me happy. I don’t capture things and objects,I try to capture emotions.  A picture is a poem in itself. It gives meaning to the things which cant be put into words. The world is a beautiful place but photography makes the world a bit more beautiful.  Through the lens of my camera i can see a whole new world which looks more colourful to me than the real world and i want to capture more and more colours and moments and freeze them in time. They say that change is the only thing constant in the world but a picture is something that does not change,even if the world around it changes everyday.
