Take a trip to India at PynelogsPosted: August 23, 2012
By Joshua Estabrooks
Have you ever been to India? Would you like to take a trip without leaving the Columbia Valley? Well come on down to Pynelogs Cultural Centre on August 25 for an interactive slideshow from renowned local photographer, Cheryl Goodwin.
Cheryl is part of the current show at Pynelogs, and will be taking us all on a lovely journey through India at 7 p.m. to compliment her stunning photographs. The photos are a result of a trip to India Cheryl took in 2011, which had a huge impact on her, she said.
“It was through my travels with backpack and camera in tow that I was overwhelmed by the sheer wonder of life that unfolded before me. Within a mere city block a person can witness an astounding range of humanity; a humanity that can be both beautiful and yet sometimes raw.”
The theme of Cheryl’s show is ‘Streets of India’ and captures the people, places and myriad modes of transportation utilized throughout the country, including the surreal environments of Rajasthan, the tranquility of the Himal foothills around Rishikesh, the urban development of ancient cities like Varanasi or the modern cities of New Delhi and Kolkata.
“For a photographer, the streets of India serve up a pallet of delight,” Cheryl said. “The saris, turbans and simple street side sights provide one with a constant awe when compared to our so very black, white and dull shades of the West. Strolling along the streets of India one soon appreciates how that color transforms its energy to the people.”
Images that will make you laugh, cry, or fall silent with wonder will be included in the show, accompanied by the firsthand accounts of Cheryl herself. This is an evening you don’t want to miss.
Admission for the slideshow is by donation, and the ever-popular bar will be open. So come on down to Pynelogs and take a journey through India without leaving the valley. For more information please call 250-342-4423.Tags: Cheryl GoodwinIndiaJoshua EstabrooksPynelogs Cultural CentreStreets of India
