The second edition of Chennai Photography Biennale, from February 22 to March 24, 2019, makes photography accessible to all

Bringing forth over 50 artists from 13 countries, the second edition of the Chennai Photo Biennale (CPB) will be held from February 22 to March 24, 2019. Pushpamala N. (renowned sculptor and photo performance artist) as the Artistic Director of this edition has chosen ‘Fauna of Mirrors’ as the theme. An old Chinese myth, it talks about an alternate universe accessible only through mirrors. This ancient fable is juxtaposed with modern photography to create images that describe the world as it is today.
