Jagdish Agarwal took his first photograph 50 years ago with an Agfa box camera given to him by his uncle Phulchandji Agarwal and later did a postal photography course from a New York School of Photography. He travelled all over India and this helped add thousands of pictures to his stock photography collection, which he has contributed to books, newspapers and magazines in India and abroad. About thirty years ago, he started the first stock photography library in India. On completing his golden innings, he presents you with 50 of his best shots he has taken over the last 50 years in the field. “A photographer must constantly travel to new places, so that his eyes discover new lines and forms. Once you are in harmony with your surroundings, pictures appear in front of your eyes,” he says. Catch his 11th solo show and check out a limited edition book from his years of photography.
