Madras Day has turned inclusive this year. A first of its kind exhibition of 20 photographs and paintings by hearing impaired artists wowed art and photography enthusiasts at the Museum of Possibilities in Chennai. The displays have captured the city’s landmarks, life and culture.
As you enter, Simron Magima Raj’s painting of Chennai’s iconic Ripon building and an auto rickshaw in the foreground draws everyone’s attention. “Ripon Building is white. Auto is yellow. It is famous and everywhere” tells Simron to tellmystory.in on the theme of his painting.
P Rohith’s photograph of a flower seller at a temple captures the spiritual side of the city. “I want to become a fashion photographer and turn into an Editor one day” says the art student pursuing his second degree.
N Kavitha, the woman photographer’s picture of a woman along Parry’s Corner says “I have become confident of my work now. I want more hearing impaired women to take up photography.”
