Help us make Chennai the home for photography in India.

Everything we do at the Foundation is made possible by the time and patronage given to us by supporters, donors, and the artist community from across the world.

All donations go towards:

  • Exhibiting and hosting national and international photographers

  • Bringing art education and visual art literacy within reach of as diverse an audience as possible

  • Supporting photographic talent regardless of class, caste, race, gender, ethnic background, or sexual orientation

  • Building public-art engagements around photography in heritage spaces, college campuses, beaches, parks, and train stations

  • Creating an ecosystem for visual artists in South Asia

If our work interests you, please consider supporting us with a donation (no matter how big or small), or introducing us to potential funding avenues. We need your support to keep going!

The CPB Foundation is a registered public trust under the Indian Trusts Act, 1882. All donations are eligible for 80G tax benefits.
