Yazhini, a third-year student from Government College of Fine Arts, will be exhibiting her first and solo photography exhibition titled ‘Ambedkar Nagar near Kakkan Bridge’.
The youngster took six months to complete the project and over the months, Yazhini has developed a great rapport with the people. “Initially, they were hesitant to pose for pictures. But after some time, they became friendly and I finished my photography project smoothly. If you happen to visit the place, you will understand that people are forced to do most of the household activities outside the house. You can spot men and women cooking, washing vessels, clothes, bathing and so on. All the houses in Ambedkar Nagar are tiny and cannot accommodate all activities,” she adds.
