Annu Palakunnathu Matthew: Panel Discussion Chennai Photography Biennale

September 29, 2019, 4-6 PM

Chennai Photo Biennale is excited to present a Panel Discussion on Family Portraiture between photo-based artist Annu Matthew and fine art photographer Martine Fougeron.

Family photos are an essential testimony of the way of life of a given period of time. They inform on the social status of the subject family, the event for which photo was taken, the selection of family members displayed in the photo. The usual family patterns have been married couples with children, sometimes along with the grandparents. The group that is now considered to be a family is no longer with the same cast. On the photographer's side, the information lies on his social status, on the image he reworks on to adjust the result to his own and the client's expectations.
