Arthita Samanta has been Nominated as the Exhibitor for AURA 2024 by Retro Kolkata Magazine

Arthita Samanta, a young and talented street and portrait photographer, has been officially nominated as an exhibitor for the much-anticipated 'AURA 2024 - International Photography & Art Exhibition'. This prestigious event, organized by Retro Kolkata Magazine, is scheduled to take place at Nazrul Tirtha, Newtown, Kolkata, from January 13 to January 21, 2024.

The exhibition, a confluence of art and photography, will feature an art exhibit from January 13 to January 15, followed by a photography showcase from January 18 to January 20, culminating in a grand felicitation ceremony on January 21.

Arthita Samanta, currently pursuing her studies in the 12th standard, has distinguished herself in the realm of photography with her unique perspective and artistic approach. Despite being self-taught, her work has garnered attention for its depth and authenticity. Photography, for Samanta, is more than a hobby; it's a deep-seated passion. Her pictures, as she describes, are akin to "letters left to the world," capturing the essence of fleeting, unscripted moments that often go unnoticed.

Specializing in street and portrait photography, Samanta has a keen eye for the extraordinary in the ordinary. Her work is characterized by its artful timing and meticulous framing, bringing to life candid moments that reflect life imitating art. Through her lens, she aims to narrate the untold stories of individuals, focusing on those with "a thousand tales but with none to listen."

The nomination of Arthita Samanta for 'AURA 2024' not only highlights her exceptional talent but also underscores the event's commitment to promoting emerging artists and photographers. The exhibition is expected to draw art enthusiasts and industry experts from across the globe, offering a platform for budding artists like Samanta to showcase their work and gain recognition.

As the event draws nearer, the art and photography community eagerly anticipates the diverse array of works that will be on display, particularly from young talents who are set to redefine the boundaries of creative expression.
