About the Speaker

Dr Harinarayan Salunky Profile PictureDr Harinarayan Salunky

Dr Salunky, ex Vice-President of YPS, started photography when he was in medical college at Manipal. 1954 -1960 he had a T.L.R camera ARGOFLEX presented by his maternal uncle, who was an artist and photographer at Kolar Gold Fields. At college he did medical and clinical photography.  While attending a slideshow at YPS, he came to know about  S.L.R. cameras & telephoto lenses. At the slideshow he met  H.N.Allamaprabhu and M.S.Hebbar who influenced him to a great extent. Later he met Dr.G.Thomas and became a life member of FIP.  He bought his first SLR,  Asahi Pentax Spotmatic One with two lenses:135mm, and 200mm telephoto with an yellow filter, all for Rs.4000 from T.N.A.Perumal.  It was with this that his jungle visits started with his friends from YPS using  monochrome (B&W) roll films.  

Rajiv Gandhi University Of Health Sciences, Bangalore (RGHUS) published a book called  ‘What is not taught in Medical Colleges!’, in which his article named “Clinical Photography” was published.
