VISAKHAPATNAM: THE walls of the YMCA Conference Hall were adroned with the photographs of the  lifestyle of various tribes in Eastern Ghats on Wednesday. The photographs illustrated the livelihood, festive mood and struggle of the tribes.

The photo gallery has the features of Koya, Bonda, Komu and Gonds. The solo exhibition was put up by BAN Nanda, a builder by profession and photographer by passion who captured the various cultures of tribes of Telangana and Andhra Pradesh.

“Clicking photographs of tribals is quite challenging and an interesting task as we have to make them feel comfortable and build some level of trust. We have to develop a friendly rapport and it will help a photographer to click photos according to the demand and capturing landscapes in your camera is a wonderful experience and easy too,” said Nanda.

“Some of my photographs have been recognised at international forum and it really motivates my passion,” he added. Various sets at the expo described  scenarios of village culture. They portray traditional ornaments, musical instruments, houses, lifestyle, attires, celebration of festivals, farming and landscapes.
