Nature does its bit for charity

At an amateur photography exhibition which is on at the Museum Auditorium here, nature, in all its glory, is on display.

Team 360 degree, a group of teenage photography enthusiasts, has lined up around 60 photographs, the sales proceeds from which will be donated to the Regional Cancer Centre here. The works are a product of the journeys made by the youngsters in the past two years.

The team picked nature as the theme since World Environment Day falls on June 5.

“Humans have endlessly exploited nature. We must now take some time off to appreciate its marvel,” says Team 360 degree.

While Gautham Ravindran has pictured wild fauna in all its might, Abhirami Iyer’s works are an amalgam of landscapes. Akhil Vinayak has captured a star-studded sky while Akshay Giri shot a gushing waterfall in all its enormity.

Gautham, Akhil, Abhirami, Akshay, Dhanush, Abhirami Sunil, Meenakshi, and Arun, who hail from varied backgrounds and work in different fields, were brought together on Facebook by a passion for photography. They held their first exhibition in 2014.

“After the success of our first exhibition, we planned to utilise our passion for a common social good,” says Dhanush Nair, a student at the Law Academy. Hence their second exhibition was dedicated to a charity venture. The photographs’ price starts from Rs.600.

The exhibition, inaugurated by K. Muraleedharan, MLA, is open to the public till Saturday.
