Karachi, Feb 8: A photography exhibition titled 'A 100-year history of Bhutto family in pictures' organised by the People's Youth Federation was opened at Shaheed Benazir Bhutto Park on Thursday evening. Most of the pictures have either been taken by photographer Agha Feroz or were taken from his collection. The exhibition will continue till February 10.

Feroz said 4,000 pictures were put up in the exhibition that was being held in the domed pavilion of the park while 1,500 more could not be displayed owing to shortage of space. The time period captured through the pictures extends from 1910 to 2010 and they project the life trajectory of one of the prominent political families of the world.

The exhibition comprises both black & white and colour pictures which depict various phases of the Bhuttos' life. Though not necessarily in a chronological order, but the viewers can easily understand the Bhuttos' journey through them.

Pictures of Zulfiqar Ali Bhutto, the late Pakistani Prime Minister who was executed by military ruler Zia-ul-Haq, with his father Sir Shahnawaz Bhutto or a baby Benazir Bhutto, Zulfiqar's daughter and another Prime Minister who was also assassinated during the regime of military man Pervez Musharraf, in her mother's arms are some of the most touching ones at the display.

The colour pictures show Benazir's married life, her husband and the current President of Pakistan, Asif Ali Zardari, in meetings and their children. One picture of Benazir with Bilawal, Asifa and Bakhtawar outside the Central Jail Karachi is a significant one.

Feroz, however, rued that no minister of the Pakistan People's Party, which is the Bhuttos' own party, bothered to turn up at the exhibition and neither cared to inquire about it. He said people should not take the exhibition just as an ordinary affair but an expression of passionate love that he has for the political family.
