Photographers come together on August 19 to celebrate the creativity and nuances of photography that have captivated us for years. The day traces its origins to 1837 when the first-ever photographic process, the ‘Daguerreotype’ was developed by the Frenchmen Louis Daguerre and Joseph Nicephore Niepce.

Slideshow and talk by Dr. Maddur Badarinath

Travel photography occupies an important place in the world of photography.  It not only involves documentation but artistically showcasing of the area’s landscape, people, cultures, customs and history.  Dr Maddur Badarinath presents Croatia and Bosnia in all its glory!

About the Presenter: Dr. Maddur Badarinath

Maddur Badarinath grew up in Mysore. After medical school in Mysore he went to England and then settled in the USA. He is actively practicing Intensive care Medicine. He got interested in photography while in England and started taking pictures wherever he went. In the USA he upgraded his cameras and took online courses in photography and started reading articles about photography. Nature and landscape photography are his passion but he also does other genres  for fun. He enjoys travelling and has a good collection of travel pictures. 

Maddur says “Photography is meditation and relaxation after years of stressful life as an ICU doctor. I still enjoy my work and photography. I share my photography with patients and friends and help them to relax. I did have solo and group photography shows in the local art galleries and have sold many pictures. I would be happy if I can make someone smile with my photography.”
