Exhibition showcased the photography of the civil aviation secretary and his wife
GN Bureau | January 23, 2014
Airport Authority of India recently organized an exhibition depicting the photographic journey of Ashok Lavasa, secretary, civil aviation and his wife Novel Lavasa exploring the nature. The exhibition was held from January 11-15, 2014 in India habitat centre.
The theme of the exhibition was ‘mates and moments’.
The Lavasa’s are not professional photographers but they are two sensitive souls who are out to assimilate life. They do so by a passionate lifestyle that reflects in their work, social interaction and incessant travel when they interact with nature. Mountains, waterfalls, the setting and rising Sun, trees, monuments and men form a part of their landscape.
While Novel has written occasional pieces on their travels, Ashok’s first book ‘An Uncivil Servant’ was published in 2006. They have participated in various exhibitions and have also had solo exhibitions in different cities. The last exhibition of their photographs ‘inward eye’ was held in 2010.
