The group, which has travelled to countries like Egypt, Africa, Greece, and Germany, has showcased the beauty of the valley.

“Lots of people know about the conflicts of Kashmir, but we also want to show the beauty with this exhibition because there are lots of positive things about Kashmir and we want people should not be afraid to come and visit Kashmir and I will find out more about Kashmir,” said Neyomi, a photographer.

Meanwhile, Obaid-ul-Haq, a local, said that the exhibition would highlight the issues that the locals face.
