Photographer, Curator and Social activist Ram Rahman shared his thoughts on the work of William Gedney, drawing parallels with some of India's most accomplished artists in this field. A key figure in America's black and white street photography, Gedney's deeply sympathetic photographs remain meaningful to us even today, because he recorded human qualities that exist outside of time and in all of us.
The winner of the JNAF photography contest for children, Street Talk was also announced by Ram Rahman who gave away prizes.
