Laya is a photography exhibition by photojournalist Raghavendra Rao, of some of the most renowned artistes of our time. The exhibition is a two-pronged tribute: to the great practitioners of music and dance, and to the culturally vibrant, resilient city of Chennai, in which the iconic photographer spent a large part of his life.
Raoji, as he was known to friends and colleagues, took pictures that reflected the social changes of the time, the cultural ethos and the political climate.
‘Laya’ is a collection of Raoji’s pictures of the great masters of dance and music who defined and made up the art scene of the city.
One year after he passed away, ‘Laya’ seeks to serve as a tribute to art and as a remembrance of the artist, philosopher and thinker that Raoji was. The photographs shall be on display between December 23 and January 9 at the Music Academy. Sangeetha Kalanidhi Sanjay Subrahmanyam inaugurated the exhibition on December 23.
