Street Stories

July 12 @ 5:30 pm - 7:30 pm UTC+5.5

YPS Meet - Street Stories, A Presentation by Thejas K R on 12 July on YPS FB (www.facebook.com/ypsbengaluru) at 5:30pm IST

YPS Meet Live | July 12, Sun | 5:30 PM | YPS Facebook page

Our next YPS meet is by Mr Thejas K Rajaram who will turn ‘Story-teller’ for us to ‘see’ street stories unfold from USA.

Thejas loves life on the street. He is often found wandering in unknown streets, talking to strangers and taking street photographs.

Good street photographs fill us with emotions or give us insight.  Good street photographs go beyond light, shapes, and faces.  They use these tools to tell great stories of life.  Sometimes, they ask questions.  Questions that may not have answers.  But questions that open up your perspectives, making the need for an answer moot.  Street photographs are magical mirrors of life.

As humans, when we were little, we were entranced by mythological stories by grandmothers with white hair, slightly drooping chin with a kind face, a worn out saree patting us lovingly with their weathered palms.  The story seeking heart still remains with us when we are adults.  We seek to understand the world around us using patterns and stories.
