The French photographer, lecturer and Kathakali dancer Chantal Jumel will pay a homage to Tamil Women through her photo exhibition called 'Inward journey through graphical India'. She came to South India to learn the traditional dance-drama Kathakali and the classical dance Mohini-Attam. During that stint, she learnt from the Tamil women the repertory and symbolism of kolam and from Sri Parameswara Kurup, a ritual painter attached to the prestigious temple of Ambalapuzha in Kerala, the technique and spirit of kalam ground painting.
Check out the unique Kolam designs by Tamil women captured beautifully through her lens.
