Guys,

As most of you already know about The Other pakistan exhibition that was held in USA in Oct, Last year, This time round we announce the Pakistan chapter for this exhibition.

Kindly refer to these threads for the previous updates:-

flickr.com/groups/pakistaniphotographers/discuss/72157604...

flickr.com/groups/pakistaniphotographers/discuss/72157608...

As planned initially the Pakistan chapter of the exhibition is been held in different cities initially in Lahore and then to other cities. For the Pakistan chapter, we have decided to add/modify some of the previous contributions in order to accomodate more PPG members.

Unlike The US Chapter which contained 31 images by 19 photographers, the Pakistani chapter is going to be have around 50 images. In order to decide the other contributions, we are opening up this thread where you can post the photos to be considered for the exhibition.

About Exhibition - Pakistan Chapter

Pakistan is a richly textured country with a distinguished history and an increasingly vibrant contemporary cultural scene. This is especially true of the arts, including photography. Within modern photography, content ranges from the yawningly banal and daringly abstract to the uniquely human. It is the latter that the proposed competition and exhibition will attempt to bring to life. The Other Pakistan wants to showcase a small number of Pakistani amateur photographers who have worked in the human-interest genre and have successfully captured the beautiful and modern aspects in everyday urban and rural life in Pakistan.

Unlike the US Chapter for the Pakistan Chapter, the exhibition is aimed at identifying a wide range of images including landscapes, fashion, portraits, modern Pakistan and desi culture. It should include urban and rural environments throughout the seasons, the beautiful in image and spirit as well as the not-so-beautiful. It should include people within their architecture linking contemporary people to their historical environments. In a sense, the participants in the exhibition would let us see how they see their country through photography.

Just as the subjects introduced in such images are individuals with their own identities, so the images conveyed by the various photographers will reflect their own distinct individual visions of Pakistan’s identity. The theme of “The Other Pakistan” appears timely since the international media have recently focused almost exclusively on a politically turbulent Pakistan, promoting stereotypical images of a violent country infected by fanaticism. “The Other Pakistan” aims to look around the screen of stereotypes.

Rules

1- The competition is open for PPG Members only
2- The deadline for the submission is 20th Jan.
3- Every member can only submit only 5 photos for the competition
4- No membership fee, printing expenses, framing and other expenses are been charged for the participation.

.The photos which have previously been selected for the exhibition need not to be added again. As most of the photos that have previously been selected will remain there. This is just to add a few more photos to the existing collection.

Regards
Yasir Nisar

Go for it! Add vibrant photographs that tell a story rather than just present an image of a time and place.

I'll look for your work on this stream! Elisabeth Braun in America.

Guys.

The Other Pakistan is going to different cities in the few days time. It would be coming back to Lahore in a month or so with a much bigger Exhibition than LUMS one. So, we will be updating you guys regarding that.

In the first phase it is visiting Burewala on 4th March, where it will be exhibited for 4 days. As mentioned previously, the theme of the exhibition is to display the facet which is oftenly ignored by most of you, and for that matter we have took the challenge of displaying the beautiful work in different cities other than the major cities Karachi, Lahore and Islamabad.

I really appreciate the efforts of all those who have been involved in making this exhibition a success. I also appreciate Dr. Shahid for taking Other Pakistan to his city which has never witnessed such activity. I salute all those guys who are doing this for showing the positive aspect of Pakistan through its culture and rich heritage.
