NGO holds photo workshop for differently-abled

Kolkata, Feb 20 (IBNS) NIP NGO (National Institute of Professionals) in association with Rotary Club of Joka conducted a Hands on Photography Workshop for the differently-abled persons at the Victoria Memorial Campus Tuesday.

The event was graced by the presence of  photographer like Sucheta Das, World Press Photo Winner who consented to guide all differently abled persons participating at the Hands on Photography training.  

Debajyoti Roy, Secretary of NIP NGO said: Â?I think differently-abled people can imagine differently from other people and this is a very unique programme as because in our society people always make a distance between normal and disabled persons. People think that disabled people cannot do the same thing as normal people can do. This is the high time to prove that differently abled people can do photography perfectly. Today, they are here for taking photographs to emphasise wellbeing rather than illness.Â?

 Sucheta Das, Founder & Director, Images Redefined Photography Institute and World Press Photo winner said, �Photography is a means to an end rather than an end itself for these people.� She also told   that the workshop was of completely different experience and pleasure."

 She said differently abled persons can create great images if they get proper guidance. Students of Images Redefined actively guided them during their shooting.

 NIP NGO is primarily an educational centre providing basic education on computer and educational programme to the blinds, other disabled persons and under privileged students, directed by Indira Gandhi National Open University (IGNOU).
