A few years back, Mandar Kolhapure came to Pune. Being a foodie, he liked to explore new joints and dishes. Slowly, he developed a habit of clicking the food as he explored it. One fine day, he realized that he has a good collection of such pictures and realized that many others would also have a similar collection. He thought of presenting these pictures at an exhibition and applied to book the Balgandharva Art Gallery a couple of months back. After getting a confirmation from the gallery, he named it as Foodography. The main intention of Foodography was to showcase the food culture of Pune and also to provide a platform for the amateur photographers.
Subsequently, he met Angad Joshi and shared the idea with him and he loved the idea. After 2 months of rigourous preparations, their hard work paid off. The result was a successful exhibition with 50 participants and a total of 220 pictures and a footfall of 2000 plus.
As you know, I love to click food. The first thing that I do most of the times after getting my dish or making one is that I click it. My journey of clicking more and more pictures started with Instagram and it continued and started getting more and more serious. One day, I got tagged by a couple of friends on a Facebook post, to send my entries for Foodography 17, a food photography exhibition, a first of it’s kind in India. Apprehensive in the beginning since I am not a professional photographer, I still decided to give it a shot and was happy to see that my pictures actually got selected from so many entries.
These were the pictures which got selected.
