For Gireesh Marengalath, mobile phone photography wasn’t something he imagined he would ever do. It happened to him by accident. From the moment he touched his first camera phone for his maiden picture to wildlife photography, everything seems like a pre-written script. However, Gireesh thinks of it as divine intervention.
Gireesh holds a record in the Limca Book of Records for having conducted the most number of exhibitions of photographs taken through a mobile phone. Gireesh is a Malayalam teacher of Kalikavu Basar U.P. School in Malappuram.
In an era when selfies and DSLR cameras dominate, people may be amused by Gireesh’s specialty of mobile phone photography. He is the first person to have conducted a mobile phone photography exhibition. But other than this aspect, what is special in his photos is the captions he gives. His captions breathe life into his pictures.
