GAS - A Year Later

Some of our regular readers (and many, many more far and wide) might remember a story we ran a year ago, called "Think You've Got GAS?" The story of Dilish Parekh and his collection of more than 4,425 cameras. Even as several exhibitions around Delhi celebrated the joys of photography on the 175th World Photography Day, the Indira Gandhi National Centre for the Arts (IGNCA) came up with a collection of rare vintage cameras from across the world. Brought to Delhi by Parekh, the exhibition introduces photography enthusiasts to 40 vintage cameras, ranging from a 1934-made Leica 250 and a panoramic camera from the 1940s to a 1960s Rolliflex. Only seven of the Leica 250 are left in the world. Read more about it on The Hindu.
