In to the Wild: School students take inspiration from wildlife photography

Manipal: Students from ten government schools in the district got the opportunity to experience an interactive exhibition of wildlife photographs, ‘Watering Hole’, captured in Kenya by Melvin Thomas, a student of Sociology at the Manipal Centre for Philosophy and Humanities (MCPH).

Melvin, an alumnus of School of Communication (SOC), travelled to Kenya on his own expense and captured the landscape of the Kenyan countryside through his lens. Students from ten nearby government schools took inspiration from the photographs displayed and were provided with colours and pencils to create their own work of art, which were displayed along with the photographs.

“Our dream is a collection of creativity (in form of stories, poetry, drawings) coming from a single source of inspiration, which is wildlife,” elucidated Melvin. The idea behind the interactive exhibition was to promote art among children.
