The Celebration of Lights – ‘Vinivida 2016’

Photography is a vision derived by imagination; it is the ability to envision a final result in your mind’s eye, and then to mould it with your tools at hand. A great photograph can explode the totality of our world, such that we never see it quite the same again. The function of the camera, whether it is Digital or Analog, is to capture the light rays of the targeted area.  Therefore photography is known as the art of capturing the light.

                                               The photographic club of S.Thomas’ College Mount Lavinia organized their inaugural photographic exhibition on the 31st of September and the 1st of October at the Lionel Wendt gallery, ‘Vinivida 2016’ titled as the “Celebration with lights”.  More than 150 photographs were chosen and exhibited out of 350 entries captured by talented Thomian photographers.  Also “Vinivida” 2016 is the first photographic exhibition in the history of college. The exhibition gave the young Thomian photographers a chance to express the vision of their minds eye and also to enrich their talents further. The photographs were taken freelance but several categories like Wildlife, Nature, Life, Monochrome and Polychrome was seen.
