A photographer (the Greek φῶς (phos), meaning "light", and γραφή (graphê), meaning "drawing, writing", together meaning "drawing with light") is a person who takes photographs.
Duties and functions
As in other arts, the definitions of amateur and professional are not entirely categorical. A professional photographer is likely to take photographs to make money, by salary or through the display, sale or use of those photographs. An amateur photographer may take photographs for pleasure and to record an event, emotion, place, as a person without a monetary motivation.
Photographer is a 2006 Malayalamdrama film written and directed by Ranjan Pramod. It stars Mohanlal, Master Mani, Neethasree and Biju Menon in major roles. It was the directorial debut of Ranjan Pramod, who has been a successful screenwriter in Malayalam cinema. The film also marks the debut of Kannada actress Neethasree in Malayalam cinema as well as the comeback of veteran composer Johnson after a sabbatical of a few years.
The film is based on the Muthanga incident, in which a policeman and a tribal were killed. Mohanlal plays dual roles in the film, one of a wildlife photographer and the other a farmer. Master Mani, who played the role of a tribal boy won that year's Kerala State Film Award for Best Child Artist. Johnson received the Mathrubhumi Award for Best Music Director for the soundtrack and Mullasserry Raju Music Award for the track "Enthe Kannanu Karuppu Niram".
The film opens, showing us the life of Dijo John (Mohanlal), a nature & wildlife photographer, his wife and young son. In a flashback scene, we see Dijo eloping with Brahmin girl Sathyavathy (Nithyashree).
Offshore (1979) is a novel by Penelope Fitzgerald. It won the Booker Prize for that year. It recalls her time spent on boats on the Thames in Battersea. The novel explores the liminality of people who do not belong to the land or the sea, but are somewhere in between. The epigraph, "che mena il vento, e che batte la pioggia, e che s'incontran con si aspre lingue" ("whom the wind drives, or whom the rain beats, or those who clash with such bitter tongues") comes from Canto XI of Dante's Inferno.
