Photography Collectible

Momento is born to promote and support Independent Photographers. The collectibles feature curated photographic works of visual artist from different parts of Bengal. Momento is aimed to convey the essence of contemporary Bengal school of Photography.

The products are designed to be displayed as personal exhibition at collector's own space. These sensitive works will help define the mood of the space they are displayed. The elegance of vision will empower the collector to build a personal art gallery at home.

How does it work?

Independent Photographer

Photography Artists who do not serve a direct client, but more inclined to work on personal assignments, may be referred as Independent Photographers. They do not earn through popular commercial channels like wedding or product photography.

Momento is designed and curated to create and alternative earning channel for Independent Photographers.

Visualize your end product. Consider production cost, visual impact, in-scope and out-scope areas. Engage in the brainstorming sessions hosted by Rishi On Ride.

Momento products are focused on two main categories. 

1.Utility Print (calendar, bookmark etc)

Upgrade Calendar (১৪২৯) - #1

সৌমেন আপগ্রেডের একনিষ্ঠ ছাত্র। মূল ধারার ছবির পথে দীর্ঘদিন চলার পর আপগ্রেডের হাত ধরে ছবির দর্শনের পথে পথ চলা শুরু করেছেন। সৌমেন তার ক্যালেন্ডার তৈরি করেছেন বাংলার বারো মাসের প্রত্যেকটির এক নিজস্ব অনুভবের ছবি থেকে।

Upgrade Calendar (১৪২৯) - #2

আর্য্য দীর্ঘদিন “আপগ্রেড” প্রোগ্রামের সঙ্গে যুক্ত। প্রতিদিনের পথ চলায় ফোটোগ্রাফির সাহচর্য্য আর্য্যকে বিভিন্ন সাধারণ দৃশ্যের মধ্যে দিয়ে জীবন উপভোগ করতে শেখায়। আর্য্য তার ক্যালেণ্ডার তৈরি করেছেন তার দেখা ভারতের বিভিন্ন প্রদেশের কিছু দৃশ্য দিয়ে। সাথে রবি ঠাকুরের রচনা থেকে আর্য্যর প্রিয় কিছু কথা দৃশ্যের সুর বেঁধে দেয়।
