The Duniya Look: Chennai
In this photography project on UrbanDuniya, we explore our four dynamic cities through their colours, faces and fashion. In a series of beautiful images, we capture the iconic look, the stunning locations and the sensual textures of the places we call home. We began last September with The Duniya Look: Lahore, celebrating Pakistan’s cultural capital, and continued in November with the urbane sensibility of The Duniya Look: Melbourne and then the alluring confidence of The Duniya Look: Sydney in January.
Today we complete our journey around the duniya, with the laid-back charm of Chennai, India’s southern metropolis; an overgrown collection of fishing villages strung along the Bay of Bengal. Chennai is a peaceful and friendly city of traders, workers and rickshaw-wallahs; a busy yet leisurely city filled with temples and traditions, with a modern history juxtaposed against one of the world’s oldest living civilisations. And in the end, it all comes back to the the long, languid beach at sunset.
Join us as we experience the subtle joys of this centre of Tamil culture, with Ananthi Rogini, Mazhar Ahamed, Aamir Suhail Khan and Tim Blight.
