An exhibition of wildlife photographs taken by the award-winning photographer NP Jayan during his year-long photo-expedition in the Silent Valley national park began yesterday at the Travancore Art Gallery in the Capital. Titled ‘Vanvaas – A year in the Silent Valley’, the exhibition is the first of the kind by the photographer, who spent the year 2007 in the national park, armed only with his camera and accompanied by Mari, a forest watcher. Twenty percent of the proceeds from the exhibition will be channelised for the welfare of the Silent Valley forest watchers through the Wildlife Trust of India (WTI), a sponsor of Jayan’s project.
