To mark 185 years of Photography, the Musée de la Petite Collection has organized an exhibition entitled Zanfan Rose-Belle. The exhibition will be on view to the public free of charge from August 18 to 20 at Plaisance Shopping Mall.
World Photography Day will be celebrated on August 19. To mark the occasion, Goorooduth Chuttoo, director of the Petite Collection, will hold an exhibition retracing the daily life of Rose-Belle villagers from 1970 to 1980. The public will discover scenes of life through some twenty black and white photos. The main aim of this exhibition is to promote photography in an age when it is all too often trivialized.
Meanwhile, Dilesh Chuttoo – Goorooduth’s son – will be holding a photography exhibition on August 19: “Along with 10 of my students, we’ll be exhibiting in Curepipe at the Sunsheel Shopping Centre from 10am to 3pm. The theme of our exhibition is Paradise Island, and it will showcase some of the country’s most beautiful landscapes. Admission is free,” explains Dilesh, director and photography instructor at the School of Photography & Videography.
