Capturing the Current

As a spontaneous reaction to the intensifying socio-political current realities in Sri Lanka the Goethe-Institut Chennai and Sri Lanka in collaboration with the Chennai Photo Biennale have selected four emerging photographers with an ongoing documentary practice. We are supporting them by awarding the photographers with small grants to continue their ongoing practice, documenting the multifold economic hardships, the people’s protest movement and other topics of current relevance in their respective surroundings.

The selection of photographers was made, taking into account the desire to support photographers with potential and an interesting practice, from a variety of locations across the country and keeping to a gender balance.
