Ahmedabad’s cultural menu doesn’t just start and end with paint on canvas! It is time to go beyond and experience a whole new world of artistic awesomeness at “Freedom of Expression” – a photography exhibition organized this weekend at Hyatt Ahmedabad.
Freedom of Expression is a joint exhibition organized by Priyanshi Patel, Abhishek Jain and Harsh Kapadia. Through their cinematic expressions, these photographers are questioning “Freedom of Expression” granted by our constitution. As an individual or as a country are we using, abusing or not using this freedom? Priyanshi Patel further explains,”In terms of art, amateurs and junior artists are always intimidated by “professionals”. We believe art is subjective and be it a professional or amateur, it must be expressed. That’s why we chose “freedom of expression” as the theme.”
Profile of Photographers:
The Film Man: Abhishek Jain
Ever since the release of ‘Kevi Rite Jaish’, Abhishek Jain is a name synonymous with the concept of ‘Gujarati cinema revamp’. CineMan, his production house works on advertisement films mainly with an intention to change the existing visual communication scenario of Gujarat. For Abhishek, a very prominent inner conviction of following a gut instinct has been a primary concern. Coupling it with an innate entrepreneurial understanding with the artistic instincts is a rare combination, which has led to an amazing eruption of creativity. His creative and managerial skills, along with his stint working as an associate director with Subhash Ghai, Sanjay Leela Bhansali for box office hits and parallel cinema have led him to develop his own unique flavour of cinematic treats.
The Industrialist Diva: Priyanshi Patel
An energetic entrepreneur yet fiercely wanting to reform the society making it upbeat and colourful with new creative sprouts is what sums up Priyanshi in one line! New York, India, Harvard, London, ISB have all just kept adding to the layers of talent and flight of climbing upwards in the corporate kingdom for her. Be it her initiation of a reading club in Ahmedabad or her project launched in Singapore or her pursuits of French, Indian Classical Music; all of them add to her in multiple ways. With a passion for tracking commodities and a VP position at an internationally recognized group, NK Proteins, Priyanshi handles it all with crystal clear consistency.
The Wonder Struck Soul: Harsh Kapadia
Harsh Kapadia, is one of those one in a million individuals, who are passionate about life and education, yet flow with the calmness of a still river.

Excelling in his academics, be it India or Harvard, Harsh has always managed to keep a structured and balanced rhythm in his being. His expertise lies in developing new educational patterns, innovative teaching methods as well as handling administrative matters at his institutes and schools. He is one of those rare gems, who transforms ideas into substantial tangible realities.
