The Paigah Tombs are a series of courtyards that houses tombs of the Paigah Nobility enclosed by walls sporting a wealth of lattice work and exotic designs in marble. Competing with each other to catch our eyes are geometrical designs done on the entrances and walls. A lone burqa clad woman watching over this historical masterpiece in the courtyard across where I was standing made this dream like frame come alive.
Born in 1979 in Bagerhat District of Bangladesh, Udayan Sankar Pal grew up in Canning (WB, India), the gateway of the Sunderbans. He has been dabbling with photography since he was 13 years old. Since the time he started working with his first camera, a Canon AE-1 Program to his current gear, Canon EOS 7D & Canon EOS 5D Mark III, he has explored the myriad images that Indian villages have to offer. Hailing from a village himself, his eyes are drawn towards those elements that he can identify with, that are hidden from a city dweller. He has compiled a few of those elements that he wants to share with you.
Brochures of many photography exhibitions laying on the road post an exhibition triggered an interesting thought in him. He began collecting them for posterity about 10 years ago & has painstakingly built his collection to over 10,000 brochures from all parts of the world now. He has established the only international Archive of Photography Exhibition (www.ape.threedots.in) in the world.
He says photography is all about the eye; you either see things or are influenced to see things. His hope is that through this collection of brochures, he may be able to help many others to research, learn, emulate and be inspired from the treasure house of photographers of the past, present and may be even the future.
Having traveled a long way from the bare feet camera toting village lad to a frantic shutterbug to a selective shooter to now an international collector of Brochures of photography exhibition, he wants you to see a slice of his life's elements through his images...

AlvaroFKinna Hey there, I think your blog might be having browser compatibility issues.
When I look at your website in Ie, it looks fine but when opening in Internet Explorer,
it has some overlapping. I just wanted to give you a quick heads up!
Other then that, fantastic blog! on 2016-03-30, at 15:07:03
Photoburst is a photo of the day contest focusing on Travel Photography.
Everyday (from the 1st until the 28th), among all images uploaded by our contributors, we publish a photo of the day (POTD).
Every week (on the 8th, 15th, 22nd and 29th), among all POTDs of the preceding week, we select a photo of the week (POTW).
On the 30th we select the best POTW as photo of the month (POTM).
From May 2015 onwards we will cease to award gift certificates to Kiva and guest editorship invitations to our POTM winners. However, occasionally we may accept/address guest editorship proposals, as we strongly believe they are a great way of further involving photographers with Photoburst. Interested? Email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
All photographs contained on this website remain the property of their authors, as indicated over each photograph. Photographs may not be downloaded, reproduced, copied, projected or used in any way without express written permission of their authors.
... as long as there's an advanced Maths course in a (not necessarily) nearby country. He's known for pushing friends into the most expensive photographic equipment... several family inheritances have been wasted, but they often acknowledge his smart advices. Owner of a clinical eye, he can spot perfection amidst chaos as easily as a small imperfection on a perfect photo. He's also an occasional stork stalker and, above all, a caring father of two beautiful children. Gastão's current location: Covilhã, Portugal.
... give us a hand. He's our Computer Science genius and is currently addicted to photographing cats. He's a natural born optimist who makes a joke out of anything... don't mess with his Toyota though. Eventually, his stocks will rise from death and he'll invest in livestock and vineyards. He's got highly trained fingers either playing the piano or shortcutting photoshop. We hope he'll stick around after marrying his college sweetheart. In the mean time, he'll dissect every submitted photograph into binary code. Pedro's current location: Covilhã, Portugal.
... would only be true if reading travel, geographic and surfing books/magazines accounted some mileage. He checks his e-mail every 2 minutes and he's often seen going cold-turkey when offline. Still divided between several walks of life, he strongly believes in Murphy's law "If anything can go wrong, it will". Photography plays a huge role in his life, at least judging by his conversation topics. Gray hair will eventually take the better of him. Pedro's current location: Covilhã, Portugal.
