Brief Description Capturing the depth of human emotions has always be the strong point of leading photographer Raghu Rai's work. A versatile photographer, Raghu Rai has worked with some of the major news journals in India and abroad. His coverage of the Bhopal gas tragedy for the India Today, won him both critical acclaim as well as the World Press Photo Award in the same year. In a heart wrenching series of photographs, Rai arrests the chaos and paranoia of the situation as it appeared before him. In later years, his iconic photographs have become part of museum collections, having attained the status of national treasures.
