Or we can say is that it is one of the few mediums which can convey feelings more instantly and effectively than words can. It also serves as a tool of education and information,” said Sandeep Marwah President of Marwah Studios addressing the students of AAFT at Noida Film City online
The day celebrates the art, craft, science, and history of photography.
