Photography Focus-Talk

The presenter of the evening, Mr. Suresh Pattabhiraman, shared his impressions from Southern India. He took us on a road trip to his homeland and to explore the areas of his youth. We received a lot of insider knowledge from someone who knows this region like his own pockets; we explored the sacred temples of the region, learned about local traditions, and of course enjoyed the great photos taken by our dear Photoresk member.

Night light walk

Yes, the darkness is still here, but shouldn’t we enjoy it?! Brussels put together a Bright Light Festival for a few days and, of course, Photoresk had to check it out. Light installations were surprisingly impressive for such a short event and the few of us who weren’t scared by the rainy weather got some […]
