Congratulations To Sudharak Olwe For Padma Shree Award

CONGRATULATIONS TO SUDHARAK OLWE FOR PADMA SHREE AWARD
 
We are extremely delighted to inform all of you that today, on the 67th Republic Day of India, Shri Suhdarak Olwe, senior photo-journalist and Mumbai Press Club member has been conferred the prestigious ‘Padma Shree’ award, the fourth highest civilian honour in India. He has indeed done us proud and given all of us great inspiration.

Sudharak Olwe (49) has been a Mumbai-based photo-journalist since 1988 and has worked as a press photographer with some of the leading newspapers in India. He is presently the Photo Editor of Marathi Newspaper, Lokmat.

Sudharak has travelled the length and breadth of this nation and seen first-hand some incredible stories of resilience, courage and change. He has worked in tandem with many NGOs presenting their extraordinary work with both rural and urban communities. His work has been featured in national publications and exhibited in Mumbai, Delhi, Malmo(Sweden), Lisbon, Amsterdam, Los Angeles, Washington and Dhaka.

He has drawn immense admiration and awe in the Indian subcontinent for revealing the naked reality of life’s tragicomic social theatre. In 2005, he was one of the four awardees for the National Geographic's "All Roads Photography Program".

Government of India awarded him ‘Padma Shree’ for his social work.

Let us all congratulate him with our best wishes that he may continue receiving many such honours in the times to come.
