Handicrafts Fair, Kolkata

A few shots of the artisans at the Handicrafts Fair, Kolkata.

The artisans are from different parts of West of Bengal and most of them are from poorer sections of the society. But they are far richer than others in the art forms they keep alive.

All shots taken using OnePlus2 on board camera.

Hello Prabir.

All that color, culture, and skill ... fascinating subject and very good images.  I'm kinda partial to number three.

Am I to understand that you created these images with a cellphone ?!  Amazing.

Happy Day.

Some say that those of us who like to talk about cameras should instead go and take pictures. I say we should go and also take pictures.

Thanks Doc.

Thank you very much, Henry.
Yes, these images were taken using my One-Plus-2 Cell phone. Having a DSLR at hand is always comfortable. I was trying to work outside the comfort zone.
