Hyderabad has a rich history and history has taught that change is the only thing which is constant. To chronicle the changes which has taken place through the 400 years of history, we are calling the denizens of Hyderabad to come forward and share what they have taken through their lens for posterity. This will later be taken to the Metro museum.
This is being done in association with Muse the Art Gallery. People of Hyderabad will send the photographs of all the changes which they see, have seen and will see up to the commissioning of the complete project. This will be on display at the Muse Art gallery and the best selected photograph will be awarded. This activity will be taking place on a quarterly basis till the commissioning of the complete project.
