Born on Dec. 18, 1923 at Mysuru, T.S. Satyan is important for we Mysureans as a legend in his own lifetime and later in his sunset days, he came back to settle down in Mysuru and also passed away in his beloved city on Dec. 13, 2009.
Therefore, Star of Mysore is proud to recall T.S. Satyan’s achievements and his last days in Mysuru by publishing the articles written by Founder-Editor of Star of Mysore K.B. Ganapathy and its Managing Editor Vikram Muthanna.
Both K.B. Ganapathy and Vikram Muthanna attended the opening of the exhibition on Aug. 12 at 5.30 pm at MAP in Bengaluru where a number of friends and admirers of T.S. Satyan had gathered.
The expo will be open for visitors till Nov. 20, 2023.
The Head of Exhibitions at MAP Arnika Ahldag, who addressed the small gathering said, “I am deeply moved by T.S. Satyan’s photographs and how compassionate he was as a photographer. His images are full of life and love and he looks for those brief moments of joy in the chaos of hardships. Somehow, he always manages to show us something that we don’t expect to see.”
Welcoming the invitees, the Director of MAP Kamini Sawhney said, “T.S. Satyan’s photographs breathe life into the fleeting moments, capturing the delicate nuances of human connection and vulnerability. Known as a photo-journalist and to celebrate his centenary, this exhibition explores a different side of Satyan — that of a photographer with a unique view and authorship.” —Editor
