CP photo exhibit to mark I- Day.

A MONTH- LONG photo festival is being planned by New Delhi Municipal Council ( NDMC) to celebrate the spirit of nationalism and freedom.

The NDMC is collaborating with the India Photo Archive Foundation ( IPAF) to host 'Art for Public' from August 15, 2014, in Connaught Place and showcase iconic and rare photographs from India's Independence struggle.

"The archival collection represents the work of once forgotten photojournalist Kulwant Roy. Tracing mainstream nationalist history, the collection comprises historic political meetings, iconic portraits and glimpses into the lives of famous freedom fighters and leaders of India. Some unseen moments from India's Independence movement will be made accessible to the general public for the first time," said O. P. Mishra, director, project department.

Some rare moments from 1930s to 1960s will spring to life in black and white.

Thirty to 35 large- sized photographs will be displayed in the inner circle, in subways and in the Central Park, an NDMC official informed.

Apart from the photographs, weekend music events in the Central Park will add to the vibe between August 15, 2014, and September 14, 2014.

"There is an in- principle confirmation from Sonam Kalra and Indian Ocean for such shows," said another NDMC official.
