India: A Different World by William B. Barnett

Join us at the New Haven Camera Club for our first program of the 2017-18 season. 7pm Sept 11th. Whitney Center, Cultural Arts Center, 200 Leeder Hill Drive, Hamden. Guests are ALWAYS welcome!!

India: A Different World by William B. Barnett

India is a country with visual stimulation everywhere: women in their colorful saris; temples; festivals; performances; historical buildings; and so much more. The program will: visit cities large and small; study the religions of India’s people; look at ancient archeological sites; attend several fairs; and visit with the people. Bill selected about 300 images and video clips for this show. These were blended with live narration, music, and local sounds to bring a visit to this wonderful country to life.



When Bill was in India the phrase “It’s a different world.” kept rattling around in his head. Most of you are probably thinking “different” in a negative sense. There are negative aspects of India. But, when you look beyond the problems India is a wonderful country to visit, particularly for a photographer. There is visual stimulation everywhere: women in their colorful saris; temples; festivals; performances; historical buildings; and so much more. The program will: visit cities large and small; study the religions of India’s people; look at ancient archeological sites; attend several fairs; and visit with the people. Bill captured more than 10,000 photographs and video clips
during two trips to India and selected about 300 for the show. These were blended with live narration, music, and local sounds to bring a visit to this wonderful country to life.



The NHCC meets on the 2nd Mondays (typically programs) and 4th Mondays (typically competition), 7:00 pm (September thru May).

Fall colors will make for wonderful landscapes of the grounds and the views from the grounds.

The castle was originally a private residence commissioned and designed by William Gillette, an American actor who is most famous for his portrayal of Sherlock Holmes on stage and was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1986. There are a number of oddities personally designed by Gillette, such as unusual doorknobs and locks, and a system of hidden mirrors for surveillance of the public rooms from the master bedroom. One can see the Connecticut River from the castle's garden."
