Nine artists from India have come together in an act of solidarity by contributing one image each to support the Chennai Photo Biennale Foundation for promoting photographic arts in the region. The Foundation's primary focus area is photography education and discourse that takes place through year-round programs and opportunities for students, emerging artists and professionals. These activities culminate in a city-wide public-art photography festival, the Chennai Photo Biennale, to showcase and build opportunities to network with international, national, and regional artists, educators and curators. The foundation's programs are diversified under three verticals - @chennaiphotobiennale @cpblearninglab and @cpbprism.
