Abin Alex, Head of the Department of Photography at Creative Hut Gurukulam of Photography, Mattakkara, Kottayam, Kerala, along with a team of thirteen others, came up with the idea of a photography wheel, which was launched at 10 am at the institute in September 2014. The overall structure is 9 ft tall with two wheels. The outer wheel is 7 ft x 7 ft, whereas the inner wheel is 5 ft x 5 ft. Information provided on the wheel is divided into five major topics: Process, Innovations, Photographs, Cameras and Legends. The wheel can be rotated so that the information about the image can be read properly. Some of the facts included are about the first photograph of the world, the most expensive photograph sold and the world’s first commercial camera.
