Do photographs speak? Are they lifeless or can they invoke thoughts in us? Lenny tells about how pictures bring to life, stories of generations past. Lenny unravels some of the mysteries of the Nizams of Hyderabad and their culture. He walks us through a brilliant symphony of pictures, clicked through generations and how they bring the history of Hyderabad to life. Rare and unseen, he wants to use them to create a visually delightful experience and preserve the heritage of our beautiful city.

Leading the legacy of Premier Studios and M F Emanuel Studios, Lenny is a third generation photographer by profession and a moment capturer by heart. His father was the photographer for the Nizams, and he currently is the epitome of modern photography and simplistic vision. With a photography experience of over forty five years, Lenny Emanuel talks to his camera, feels the moment and creates memorable stories for the visual appeal.
