Four decades ago, Kodak was credited for building the first digital camera. Since then, many other brands perpetually shifted to digitalization in camera and subsequently revolutionized the photography industry. Today more that 3 billion people use digital camera around the world. Photography became less expensive and cumbersome with the advent of cameras without rolls. Owing to this increase in the number of photographers with limited mediums to showcase the photographs, the photography festivals came into the picture.
Much like a film festivals, a photography festival is a platform for the budding and also the experienced professional photographers to showcase their work and get an honest feedback by the acclaimed photographers and critics. Not just that, photo festivals also become important in times when photographers are going beyond capturing the events, they are in fact exploring themselves through this art form. The photo festivals are useful in terms of networking and getting the right direction.
India hosts many photo festivals and the recent upcoming festival is the very prestigious, Delhi Photo Festival. The biennial Delhi Photo Festival, a nonprofit initiative of Nazar Foundation, is a celebration of photography, organized on the lines of other important International photo festivals.
