Publication Series

The photo-art book and notebook, has an incredible potential in reaching out to an audience who, for one reason or another, do not have access to regular exhibition spaces and/or to acquire and collect photographic art. However, an artist’s photo-art book still preserves an involuntary eliteness in that it is not as prominent in most homes as literature has become, owing no doubt partially to the relative novelty of the medium, but undeniably also due to a lack of penetration of contemporary art into the everyday life. The multiple illustrated photo-art books and photo-art notebooks, soon to be published by EtP, will depict the ancient Tamil country and her long-standing connections with other cultures and continents from ancient times to the present. EtP pursues its vision of promoting and popularizing photo art by bringing out a publication series titled “Tamilakam Rekaikal” – contemporary photo imprints of the fast changing culture, landscape and life-style in South India.


The photobook is an avenue that EtP intends to utilize in bringing contemporary photography to the public. The “Tamilakam Rekaikal” photobook series will be a curated peek into EtP’s photogrpahic archives. The first installment will feature images produced in the first phase of the project, which was concluded in Tiruvannamalai, and further installments will include photobooks based on Abul Kalam Azad’s “Black Mother” and “War Wedding Widows”.
