This exhibition is the result of a Photo competition organized by Alliance Française de Delhi — On joue sur la Terre — “The World is the Playground” with the support of Fondation Alliance Française

It will showcase first 36 Best Photographs (printed by Alliance Française de Delhi).

The theme of the exhibition is to showcase the games often played in many social and cultural functions (board games, gambling, video games, outdoor games, children’s games, sporting events, etc.). This collection of various photographs in different moods clicked by emerging talented people portrays a collage of playful feelings of society. This exhibition will become a platform to learn about the evolution of the playful customs in the world and had given an opportunity to all the photography lovers to showcase their talent world-wide.

Photographers have used their cameras to explore the faces of friends, loved ones, passing strangers etc.

On joue sur la Terre features the photographs worth a thousand words. The brilliancy and sharpness of some of them are highly remarkable. The photographers have tried their best to share their visual experience by every possible means. The best images are the ones that retain their strength and impact over the years, regardless of the number of times they are viewed.

Photography as a powerful medium of expression and communications offers an infinite variety of perception, interpretation and execution. All the photographers are spreading some kind of feeling/emotions. That is why we say “Photography is an art of observation. Its about finding something interesting in an ordinary place…”
