The year 2001 marked 50th year of Kamat picking
up the hobby of photography, and to mark the occasion, he had sent me a handful
of photographs -- most of them featuring family members -- that he had taken over the five
decades. Technically, they might not be of great value, having taken with poor
equipment, having suffered the test of time, moisture, and loss of pigments.
However, they are of historical importance, because they trace the development of Kamat
Photo Archive, and document Kamat's Passion for Photography over five decades.
