VIBGYOR has been engaging photographers from across the Nation for the last nine years. It may sound a long journey so far, however, it still feels fresh, especially when we get motivated to launch a new endeavour. The onset of COVID-19 has affected the regular course of photography, where we used to charge the batteries, load the memory cards and set out for the shoot with our gears. It's time to step out, only and only when it is absolutely necessary. We at VIBGYOR, always value safety, much more prior to the urge of continuing the regular practice of passion. And we strongly believe in the fact that even though its time to stay indoors, there should be no disrespect to the love and affection towards what we love doing the best. Art has always been the most powerful tool, and we would like to encourage the usage more and more among our members.
So, on this occasion of World Photography Day 2021, we at VIBGYOR proudly introduce you to our library, which is named as BOOKSHELF.
Bookshelf is a library, maintained by VIBGYOR, where we have a physical book bank of a set of books, predominantly related to photography. We strongly believe, these books are a gem of a collection, where learning never ends. To motivate the urge of reading, we are also including books of various genres. One can lend any book of their choice to read it and return it back to us within a stipulated time, for a minimum charge of 10 INR per book. This service is meant to spread the knowledge of photography and pamper the art of reading.
We would sincerely like to mention about Better Photography magazine, who has supported us in this initiative with 12 years of editorial magazine of the esteemed magazine, to build the first major foundation of this book bank. to support us in this initiative. Also, we would like to thank the authors of Kitabnama, who have sponsored a copy of their book for this initiative.
Come...Let us share a book, and knowledge...
The bookshelf is now open.
