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).
