New Delhi: A three day photo exhibition featuring the works of some of the prominent photographers of the country was inaugurated here to raise funds for the flood ravaged victims of Ladakh.

Ace lensmen Samar Jodha, Prabir Purkayastha, Amit Pasricha and Rohit Chawla were among those who showcased their priced collection, the proceeds from which would go to the relief and rehabilitation of the victims of flood ravaged Leh.

The exhibition is part of an initiative launched by Religare Art and NDTV lifestyle foundation to help the cloudburst victims of Ladakh.

Some of the most picturesque scenes captured in frames over the years were on display at the event. While images of the scenic beauty Ladakh as well as of its people captured in frames dominated the space, a few random works from photographers collection also found a place at the exhibition.

"Ladakh is every photographer's dream, a source of inspiration for so many since many years now. Though I had been to Ladakh many years back, as you can see from the pictures, its every photographer's delight", celebrated photographer Rohit Chawla said.

Whether it is the snowclad and misty mountains of Ladakh in different shades, little monks clad in red robes, little houses clustered together on a hill top, a lonely man standing in front of his broken house or the breathtaking aerial view of the Arabian sea baring its ribs, each image has a different story to tell that intrigues and delights the onlookers at once.

"Around 80 works by 35 artistes are on display. While there are other works too, 95 per cent of the work centres around Ladakh," says, Mukesh Panika, Director Religare Art.

The three day exhibition that will be on display at the gallery here till September 5 is scheduled to travel to other cities around the country to raise funds for the cause.
