Pondy Photo festival

At one end of the promenade, this abandoned former distillery served as a unique setting for the masterpieces presented at the Pondy Photo festival held last March. For the occasion, a collective exhibition on the tribes of India united images by Pablo Bartholomew, Karen Dias, Srikanth Kolari and Amos Jaisingh: Yannick Cormier, photographer and commissioner of the exhibition, paid tribute to these Indian communities that resist, and often struggle against, the development of their country. A reality that is very close to home, just over the threshold of the Sri Aurobindo Ashram community (founded in 1926): whilst this sincere institution gives numerous families the chance to develop their dispensaries, housing and artisanal activity, it remains no more than a kind of cult.
