5 Fun Activities to Check Out at Delhi Photo Festival 2015

Kasturi posted on 28th October

Ten Second Takeaway

Delhi Photo Festival seems like an intensely academic area, with lots of thinking, programmes and workshops. But it's so much more than just that. Here are the 5 things to catch if you just want to have some good fun at the photo festival.

Food Court


We are absolutely loving the food stalls at Delhi Photo Festival this year. Where Big Bongg Theory will be doing a Bengali-Japanese fusion {not on their regular menu}, Rustom’s is upping the ante with mawa cake, jam tarts, keema pattice and more. You can find Ploof doing a healthy version of a barbecue, and supremely fun Sri Lankan curries. And the best part? Everything is under INR 200.

When: 31st October and 1st November

Photo Op

LBB and The Portret Project will also be having a Photo Op. Expect everything that a quintessentially Delhi street will throw at you {apart from the dust}: Cycles, flowers, commotion and a lot of fun. The Portret Project will be right beside you providing instant photographs {no later than 15 minutes} and we promise you a great time.

When: 31st October and 1st November

Camera Obscura


This workshop by Click Academy and Polish Institute will be granting you some insight into the science of cameras. Conducted by Martushka Fromeast, the workshop will help you construct a gigantic (7X7X7 feet) pinhole camera installation. You will be able to understand how the human eye and a camera works. Look out for fun activities {how to make hand made cameras!} and the opportunity to exhibit at DPF.

LBB Treasure Hunt

You don’t need to be a professional photographer; you can come solo or with company, but you can have a lot of fun. 50 participants will be divided into two teams. Tackle the tasks, time, and other teams to get ahead in the race and you can win some fabulous prizes {we hear there’s a phone involved}. On your mark, get set,…register.

When: 1st November, 4pm – 5.30pm

David Campany 


In his keynote speech, British writer, scholar, curator and artist, David Campany will be talking about the tension that exists between affection and suspicion in our relationship with contemporary photography. David Campany is a teacher of photography theory and practice at the University of Westminster, London, so you're sure to grab some good insights.
