Timeless

 
 

"Bharatanatyam is one of the oldest classical art forms and pride of Tamil Nadu. My photo story portrays dancers who have finished their Arangetram after years of formal training in Bharatanatyam. Through their portraits I wanted to capture and showcase the eternal glory and timelessness of this art form. These dancers have been trained by the Saraswati Gana Nilayam which has been teaching Bharatanatyam for 80 years in a quaint locality of Triplicane. The city of Madras has its charming ways of holding on to traditions and culture. "
