A flickering moment if unrecorded slips into oblivion. The artist's eye behind the lens discovers much more than what the camera lens can. It perceptively contemplates and makes the camera record what the inner eye experiences. It requires a split second judgement. Nemai Ghosh has not only been the photo-biographer of the great cinema maestro Satyajit Ray but the only link between the film maker and his larger audience in documenting ad revealing those moments and perceptive insights that goes in the making of a film and usually remain unrecorded.
The exhibition "Satyajit Ray : From Script to Screen" is an attempt where the photographer-artist has culled out a stimulating cross-section of images from his phenomenal archive of over95,000 negatives spread over the years. The NGMA wishes to share these insights and visual delights covering 25 years of his associations with the great master of film making with the art lovers of this country.
